The ADF VII started on a very high note in Addis with the various clusters discussing the issues in detail for the presentation to the main ADF forum later this week.

During the session on youth and climate change several nissues came up among them the need for African youth to take up transformationl leadership, a need for education and capacity building for the yoputh who are more often marginalized.The issue of inclusion of disabled youth and youth refugees in matters of climate change was also discussed.

As well there was the question of investin more 9in research by youth as well as dissemination of research findings in a manner easily understood by young people across the continent.

Also brought to the forth was the issue of intergenerational knowledge transfer and mentorship to ensure that young people grow into leadership.

I will keep you all updated as we move along.
