From COP22 to COP26, the Brazzaville Foundation has been providing technical support to the Congo Basin Blue Fund

From 1 to 12 November, the Brazzaville Foundation is present at COP26 in Glasgow to support the member countries of the Congo Basin Climate Commission (CBCC), which will be advocating the urgent need to preserve the Congo Basin, an African and global issue.

 

The Blue Fund pavilion at COP26 is the result of the collaborative work of the CBCC and Brazzaville Foundation teams, embodied in the CBCC's advocacy and communication strategy, and the Blue Fund's marketing and branding strategy approved at the second CBCC Summit of Heads of State and Government, which took place on 30 September 2021.

Initially conceived by experts brought together by the Brazzaville Foundation in 2016, the Congo Basin Blue Fund project was brought forward by His Excellency the President of the Republic of Congo Denis Sassou N'Guesso at the COP22 in Marrakech, with the support of the King of Morocco, His Majesty Mohamed VI.

 Action Summit for Africa's co-emergence on the occasion of COP22 in the presence of Jean-Yves Ollivier, Founding Chairman, Brazzaville Foundation and Denis Sassou N'Guesso, President of the Republic of Congo 

 

In 2021, five years later, the partners are presenting the successful trajectory of an African project: the Congo Basin Blue Fund has become an African development fund supported by 16 Central and East African countries, members of the Congo Basin Climate Commission. It is managed by the Development Bank of Central African States (BDEAC). It aims at regional integration and the well-being of the populations, by responding to climate issues on a continental and global scale by financing a pipeline of 254 projects based on the principles of the green and blue economy in each of the countries engaged in its governance.

In March 2017 in Oyo, Congo, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed by 10 Heads of State and Government. The expertise of 4C Morocco was then sought to ensure the coordination of focal points and associated technical experts, with the support of the World Bank and UNDP. Finally, in 2019, a prefiguration study was entrusted to the EY-Innpact consortium.

 

During COP26, official meetings, side events and visits of delegations and observers are planned: the pavilion is the central point of information and exchange on the preservation of the Congo Basin. Find all the documents, photos and videos on the Blue Fund website.
