The African Climate Reality Project (ACRP) works with partners, coalitions, and communities disproportionately affected by the climate crisis and climate injustice to increase pressure on Public Finance Institutions (PFIs) in Africa to commit to the 1.5 °C target and invest in more socially and environmentally sustainable projects based on African-centred solutions. ACRP aims to build, strengthen, and connect our Climate Leader community to raise climate ambition, carry out days of action across the continent, and impact projects at the grassroots level. Our focus is to develop an active youth through climate literacy and to support civil society movements. We also emphasize the importance of storytelling in the African context, amplifying African voices by providing a platform for communities to highlight their lived experiences. ACRP has two focus areas: Public Finance and Climate Literacy and Awareness. The goal of the Public Finance campaign is to capacitate communities to be able to speak confidently on public finance issues and take part in public participation processes. The goal of the Climate Literacy and Awareness campaign is to see increased climate literacy, particularly of Indigenous and local knowledge practices, leading to more climate action and adaptation across Africa. The overall impact ACRP hopes to have is to increase public pressure on decision-makers and create space for the most vulnerable groups to have a say in the decisions that affect their future. Through ACRP’s Public Finance and Climate Literacy programs, we aim to use education, mobilization, and advocacy to influence the relevant institutions to deal with the climate crisis, advancing climate justice objectives.
