The following roads will be temporarily closed for two days due to the upcoming African Climate Summit, to be hosted by President William Ruto from September 4-6 at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC).

The forum, which is hosted by the Kenyan government in conjunction with the African Union, will bring together Heads of States, thought leaders, policymakers, industry experts, and stakeholders from around the world. More than 20 African heads of state and governments and 13,000 delegates from across the world, including U.N. Secretary General Antonio Guterres are expected to take part.

The inaugural Nairobi Africa Climate Summit aims to give Africa’s voice and position during the upcoming global COP 28. This is in recognition of the increasing impacts of climate change on development with sustainable tourism identified as a high impact sector with global relevance.

The roads will be closed from Monday, 4th September at 2am until Wednesday, 6th September 6th at 6pm.

The affected roads are:

1. Harambee Avenue from Parliament Roundabout to Taifa Road Junction.

3. City Hallway Junction from Holy Family Basilica Roundabout to Taifa Road Junction

4. Parliament Road from Harambee Avenue Roundabout to the City Hall way Roundabout.

Significant traffic congestion is expected on several other main roads due to the prioritized accommodation arrangements for the 30,000+plus international delegates.

58 hotels have been designated to accommodate VIPs, delegates, and participants. A majority of the hotels are situated along key routes such as Mombasa Road, Waiyaki Way, and Limuru Road. This may also affect traffic on the mentioned roads.
