At the High-Level Meeting, discussions revolved around this new partnership, the preparations for the upcoming 4th International SIDS Conference in Antigua and Barbuda in May 2024, and the AISCC annual report for the Committee of African Heads of State and Government on Climate Change (CAHOSCC), which was adopted during the 37th Ordinary Session of the Assembly of the African Union.
