Who Are We
International Climate Change Development Initiative (ICCDI) was founded in 2013 as the first-ever weekly twitter conversation about climate change in Sub-saharan Africa with the vision to build a climate-smart generation across Africa using the power of social media to inform, connect and empower young people to take action and hold government actionable to addressing climate change. It has since grown into a well-recognized, expertly staffed organization. We are young professionals who have spent extensive time in the fields of climate change and sustainable development and have dedicated our work to create, facilitate, and manage youth-oriented projects.
International Climate Change Development Initiative (ICCDI) focuses on several thematic areas, including Climate Change and Disaster Risk Reduction, Sustainable Agriculture & Food Security, Biodiversity Conservation, Youth Leadership and Development, and Renewable Energy.
We also provide consultancy on environmental and social impact assessments. Through our work, we hope to create awareness about Climate Mitigation and Adaptation, Food Security, and Sustainable Development.
We are determined to tackle issues that are especially hard-hitting in Africa and are passionate about creating awareness and opportunities for other young Africans to join us in this movement.
