Agenda 2024


Hosted by African Development Bank (AfDB): Unravelling Africa’s Energy Transition

06 Mar 2024

Boardroom 2: East Ballroom

Collaborative boardroom discussions where all participants contribute.

Presently, ~700 million Africans (and rising) do not have access to energy which is an important part of the global transition equation. Africa has a unique global position to leverage its natural capital for the growth of its economic and social goals (development and industrialization) whilst supporting global energy transition needs. How do we collectively develop innovative mechanisms that will guarantee Africa’s energy security, whilst also addressing climate change challenges along the journey to achieving net zero in line with obligations under the Paris Agreement?
