Call for Abstracts for the 6th International Climate Change and Population Conference on Africa (CCPOP-Ghana2018) under the Theme:

“The Future We Do Not Want”

Date: 23rd – 25th July, 2018

Venue: Accra, GHANA

Background

Climatic hazards are increasingly becoming common features of society globally amidst heightened demographic and social change, as well as spatial development. These have resulted in tensions in human-dominated landscapes because climate change policy regimes failed to relevantly integrate climate change actions into local governance, putting several populations at risk of disease, hunger, migration and poverty to mention a few. The United Nations estimates that the world’s population that will live in urban landscapes will hit 2.4 billion people in cities alone by the year 2040.

Recent milestones of the environment attest to the urgent need to address climate change, population and development related nuances, for which the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), the Sendai Disaster Risk Reduction Framework, and the Paris Climate Agreement have brought momentum to the discussions. As the conference theme “The Future We Do Not Want” depicts, we are gathering in Accra, Ghana again to deliberate lessons for African states to provide adaptation solutions to slow down or avoid the most damaging effects of climate change. It is noteworthy that such solutions are not only found on the African continent but are also “held in trust” especially by scientists, policymakers, industrialists, globally for which we are inviting you to support this international conference in ways that can motivate Africans to take additional actions.
