Logo of Pan African Climate Justice Alliance

A Consortium of more than 1000 organisations from diverse backgrounds in 51 African countries, PACJA works to mainstream climate change in national poverty reduction and sustainable development blueprints. In the pursuit of its mandate, the Alliance collaborates, and extends outreach with like-minded organisations and individuals with a shared vision, to entrench climate justice as a central element in international climate discourse and intervention processes.

The Alliance Health and Climate strategy, developed in 2021, is consistent with the following COP 26 health commitments:

  1. Committing to a resilient and just post-COVID recovery, ensuring health and social justice are anchored in UNFCCC processes.
  2. Harnessing the health benefits of climate action
  3. Creating energy systems that protect and improve climate and health.
  4. Protecting and restoration of nature as the foundation of our health
  5. Promoting healthy, sustainable, and resilient food systems
  6. Climate Finance for health
  7. Capacity building of the health systems

As an Alliance, in its advocacy agenda, sees health undertones in all areas of interest, among them Population health and environment, energy, food security and nutrition and mental health, biodiversity protection, etc.

Supporting the following commitments:

  • Conduct climate change and health vulnerability and adaptation assessments (V&As) at population level and/or health care facility level.
  • Develop a health national adaptation plan (HNAP) informed by the health V&A, which forms part of the National Adaptation Plan.
  • Use the V&A and HNAP to facilitate access to climate change funding for health.
