The side event provides a good platform for CSOs to interrogate and interact with the Kenyan government report, understand more about the African States’ position on Climate Change and Land Rights, and explore further commitments and strategies on the advocacy opportunities following the review. The outcome of the side event will form the basis of developing a more concrete programme around strengthening the African climate change civic space among the CSOs, especially indigenous communities.
The Main Objective of the side event will thus be: to provide a platform for African CSOs to interrogate African States Human Rights commitments in the African Charter, as well as other instruments, with regard to indigenous communities, based on the reports submitted to the ACHPR.
