The DRFN is part of the Regional Sustainability Network (RSN), which is an HSF-Kenya initiative that was launched in September of 2018 and this project will run from 2018-2020. RSN is comprised of various institutions from the civil society sphere currently representing eight countries from sub-Saharan Africa. This network aims to contribute towards achieving of the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement through:

  • Enabling a strategic, innovative and efficient information exchange between actors in Africa in the thematic area of Climate Change and Environmental Sustainability
  • Establishment of a database that showcases new and ongoing initiatives and partnerships in the area of Climate Change and Environmental Sustainability and maps these partnerships
  • Capacity building of partner organizations for active and innovative future design

 The UNEA-4 platform thus presented itself as the perfect opportunity to achieve some of these objectives mentioned above. Three partner countries (Namibia, South Africa and the Democratic Republic of Congo) were represented by their various members this year’s United Nations (UN) Assembly which was themed around finding innovative solutions for the world’s environmental problems, the hashtag for this event was #SolveDifferent.
