They deliberated on the topic: Addressing the Climate Crisis and Human Settlements Nexus in Africa, Preventing further loss and damage from climate impact through technology. President Masisi hosted the event in his capacity as chairperson for Knowledge and Data for Africa Climate Mobility Flagship Programme. 

Dr Masisi's biggest wish is for Botswana to have partners in solar harnessing and water harvesting; an undertaking he relayed would not only improve the livelihoods of Batswana but would go a long way at keeping at bay the use of fossil fuels that were not environmentally friendly.
