Based in South Africa and serving as the point of contact for the whole African continent, the African Climate Reality Project (ACRP) is a hub for wide ranging educational and advocacy projects led by Climate Reality Leaders. ACRP strengthens citizen engagement through awareness and capacity-building programs and trainings. Through these activities, ACRP builds and executes campaigns that are action focused. As climate change increases the risks of dangerous heatwaves, drought, and storms to countries across Africa, more and more people are searching for practical solutions that can not only address this crisis, but also power sustainable growth In response, ACRP leads the Action 24 project, aimed at strengthening environmental governance and civic participation, in order to advance decarbonized sustainable and inclusive development in South Africa.  ACRP also conducts research in understanding climate literacy and the gendered effects of the climate crisis. Their own Zero Emissions | Omissions program mobilizes young activists at universities and in communities to organize and run their own divestment campaigns, while continuing the pressure on the African Development Bank to divest.
