Across 15 countries in West, East, Central and Southern Africa, brainstorming sessions will bring together local innovators, entrepreneurs, NGOs, government officials and others, to identify and discuss approaches to solving climate problems.
Entrants can participate by selecting from a number of categories. Find out all the relevant competition dates, deadlines and rules.
There will be three regional A4A challenges this year, beginning in West & Central Africa, continuing to East Africa, concluding in Southern Africa in early 2012.
A total of nine winners (three from each region) will be selected, winning prizes for their innovative solutions to the Climate Challenge.
Many of our partners have committed to considering follow on support for some of the winners. For private sector companies and individual entrants, this might include business plan development, advice or investment. For non-profits this might include follow on grants or other support.
