The Afri-Res (Africa Climate Resilient Investment Facility) will be discussed during ACRIS IV.

ACRIS IV will assist governments, planners, private developers in Africa to integrate climate resilience in project planning and design, whilst also introducing international technology and service providers that can deliver on the announced projects.

Private discussions of projects and investment opportunities, as well as one to one business to business and business to government roundtable meetings to initiate these collaborations will be organised during the summit.
