Africa Climate Summit; 2023

Maasai Mara University on Climate Change

University Action

Driving Green Growth & Climate Finance Solutions for Africa

His Excellency President William Samoei Ruto is the driving force behind the first-ever Africa Climate Summit [ACS23] that ran from 4th-6th September, 2023, which has come out strongly to address the continent's growing vulnerability to climate change and its costs on a worldwide scale as well as specifically in Africa. As climate crises are predicted to become more frequent and intense, immediate action is needed to lessen these difficulties. The Nairobi Declaration has been developed, amendments done and finally adopted by African leaders present in the Summit as a forum to inform, frame, and influence commitments, pledges, and outcomes.

Maasai Mara University was at the forefront to present her Climate Action Activities during this crucial summit that attracted parastatals, investors from the global community as well as developing stakeholders in the climate and environment sector. Maasai Mara University was the Only University in the summit to showcase her Climate Action Activities that entailed five (5) items namely:

  1. Briquette fuel manufacture from biomass waste
  2. Biogas production
  3. Model Tree Nursery
  4. African Medicinal Botanical Garden [AMBG]
  5. Recycling & Management of University Wastewater/Effluent Unit

The institution has made strides to have inclusive partnerships with relevant stakeholders, the National government as well as Community Based Organizations as part of her strategic plan in ensuring the objective of the Africa Climate Summit is adopted for development.
