Climate Change impacts disproportionately affect Africa, and the issues are cross-cutting as it affects human health, socio-economic development, agriculture, and water security more so during the Covid-19 pandemic. To this extent the discussion will address critical gaps and challenges and interrogate what climate change adaption and mitigation strategies have been developed that can be used in the event of future pandemics. Furthermore, this dialogue is envisioned to engage experts, young scientists, policy influencers and interested parties on climate change adaptations and mitigation following the proceedings at the 26th Conference of the People (COP26). Finally, this engagement will explore pathways for promoting gender equality and women empowerment in face of climate change, Gender Based Violence (GBV) and Covid-19.
