African Feminists have gathered in Bonn to foster collaboration within the climate space in the build-up to the UNFCCC COP27 taking place in Egypt in 2022. We intend to scale concerted climate action among African and global feminists in the climate space and have a set of demands of concern and common interests which should be addressed during COP27. African feminists work within the climate ecosystem to drive actions around key priority themes – climate justice, gender justice GBV, agriculture, technology, climate finance, sexual reproductive health and rights (SRHR), education, energy transition, loss and damage, food sustainability, adaptation, mitigation, capacity building, and response measures.

To ensure that the decisions at COP27 reflect the needs of the diverse groups on the African continent including women, indigenous peoples, people with disabilities and the aged among others, the Women and Gender Constituency will present African Feminist Demands for COP27 for world leaders to ensure form part of COP27 decisions.
