The Second African Civil Society Winter School on the 2015 Climate Agreement (ADP): Re-strategizing and Re-thinking African Climate Action was organised and presented jointly by the Heinrich Böll Stiftung (HBS) and Pan African Climate and Environmental Justice Alliance (PACJA). The Winter School took place at the Devonvale Golf and Wine Estate, near Stellenbosch, South Africa, from 9 to 11 September 2015 as a follow up to the successful 2014 Winter School which was held in Muldersdrift, near Johannesburg. Fourteen African countries from sub-Sahara were represented at the Second Winter School, namely Benin, Botswana, Burkino Faso, Ethiopia, Gambia, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Malawi, Mauritius, South Africa, Togo, Uganda and Zambia. The Participants represented a range of key civil society organisations (CSO) operating in the climate change, gender, climate justice and environment space. In addition, the winter school benefitted from the attendance of government negotiators from Botswana and Kenya as well as representatives from several major international organisations such as the Climate Action Network (CAN), HBS, Oxfam, Women’s Environment and Development Organisation (WEDO), and World Wildlife Fund (WWF).
