COP26: African Development Bank’s climate champions celebrated in Glasgow

( AfDB ) - Ahead of the COP26 climate conference in Glasgow, St. Andrew's Cathedral, the iconic city landmark, will host an exhibition featuring ChangeMakers, a campaign led by Climate Investment Funds.

The African Development Bank is a partner of the campaign and implementing agency of Climate Investment Funds. The Bank nominated several climate champions from the continent who actively work in the field of climate action. Their images will be projected on the façade of St. Andrew's Cathedral until one week after the end of COP26.

Grace W. Kpan promotes universal access to energy in Africa. She has set up Light On, an initiative of young Africans, which promotes entrepreneurship in key areas that are a lever for the economy in West Africa so they will be able to face community issues like access to energy. On 15-16 October 2021, in Abidjan, Light On hosted the first edition of the Regional Energy and Sustainable Development Fair with the support of the African Development Bank.

Zineb Aghzou creates clean energy by working as an engineer at the largest concentrated solar power plant in the world, Morocco’s Noor Ouarzazate project, financed with a combined investment of nearly $2.5 billion from the African Development Bank, Climate Investment Funds, the World Bank and other partners.

Prithiviraj Booneeady is improving weather observation to enhance climate resilience in Botswana. He is coordinator of the Southern African Development Community Climate Services Center, financed by the African Development Bank through the Climate for Development in Africa Special Fund.

Jean Yves Andé is helping Côte d’Ivoire access climate finance to better respond to the negative impacts of climate change. He was appointed coordinator of a project at the Africa Climate Change Fund, hosted by the Bank.

Adama Tondossama is working to conserve the Banco National Park in Côte d’Ivoire. Adama is a water and forests engineer for the Abidjan Urban Transport Project, supported by the African Development Bank.

The African Development Bank has served as an implementing agency of Climate Investment Funds since 2018. Climate Investment Funds launched the ChangeMakers campaign in September 2021 and will continue to showcase global ChangeMakers and partners leading up to and beyond COP26.
