Leveraging AI to tackle the challenges of climate change in Africa
Africa is one of the most vulnerable continents in the world to climate change, according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). In 2022, every part of the continent was affected by extreme weather events, ranging from wildfires in Algeria to catastrophic flooding in South Africa. In addition the the human lifes lost during flood, cyclone,…, it is also increase extreme poverty.

The vast majority of the continent’s populations living in the rural areas also lives in extreme poverty. The enhancement of sustainable agricultural and rural development is therefore fundamental to the attainment of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in Africa, particularly the eradication of hunger and poverty.

Thus a lot of african depend on agriculture and the climate change effect has a strong negative impact in their lives.

Thus, We are organizing a workshop on March 16 in Geneva during the WSIS Forum entitled : Artificial Intelligence for Climate change in Africa

The purpose is to use AI to address some of the critical issues of climate change affecting population and agriculture and to showcase initiatives or solutions that are tackling those challenges.
