TransAfrican Climate Caravan of Hope
The Trans African Climate Caravan of Hope is a campaign mobilization organised by PACJA that will tell the African story about climate change, whilst making known the demands of Africa people to its leaders and the rest of the world. The Caravan is a huge mobilization and awareness raising for African civil society to highlight the challenges climate change poses to African’s efforts to extricate herself from poverty and attainment of Millennium Development Goals.
The caravan is set to run through 10 countries and will bring together communities from diverse backgrounds in Eastern and Southern Africa to join up and demand climate justice before the COP 17 in Durban, South Africa.
An inter-state taskforce with representatives from each participating country has been established working with a broad group of civil society groups and campaigners from across Africa. The participating countries are Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Malawi, Botswana and South Africa.
