3 mins read

As the world comes together to tackle climate change, Kenya is hosting the inaugural Africa Climate Summit (ACS) 2023 to be held under the theme “Driving Green Growth and Climate Finance Solutions for Africa and the World”.

The event, co-hosted by Kenyan government and the African Union Commission, with President William Ruto as the Chairperson of the summit, is scheduled to take place from September 4–6 this year at Kenyatta International Convention Centre.

The summit will gather around 14,000 delegates and dignitaries, including Heads of State and Ministers from around the world. With so many dignitaries coming together, ensuring their safety and the smooth flow of the event is paramount.  The Ministry of Interior and National Administration has orchestrated a meticulous security plan, leaving no stone unturned in ensuring the success and protection of participants.

The ministry will deploy a dedicated multi-agency team of 4,000 skilled security officers whose objective is to safeguard not only the Summit but also the safety and well-being of all attendees. Given the sheer scale of the event, strategic planning and foresight are crucial to forestall any disruptions or unforeseen incidents that may arise. With unwavering dedication, the government is fully committed to orchestrating a seamless and secure summit.

PS Raymond Omollo has affirmed the existence of a comprehensive emergency response strategy, poised to address any unanticipated circumstances promptly. This approach underscores the Ministry’s commitment to preparedness and emphasizes the importance of ensuring the safety and security of all participants.

The Ministry’s security arrangements will extend to attendees and the general public, with a straightforward yet effective security protocol in place.

Kenyans who wish to attend the conference will be given an accreditation. This mandatory process applies not only to participants but also to tenants of the KICC premises. These measures function as security filters, carefully controlling access to the venue to include only authorized individuals.

As the world unites to address the pressing issue of climate change, it’s essential to recognize that safety and progress are interconnected.

The robust security arrangements orchestrated by the Ministry of Interior and National Administration for the Africa Climate Summit underline the collective responsibility we share in making this historic event a resounding success.
