SUPPORTING CLIMATE RESILIENCE AND A JUST ENERGY TRANSITION IN AFRICA - The African Economic Outlook 2022 report is finally here: The African Development Bank Group (AfDB) is joining the Atlantic Council’s Africa Center to launch the new publication that aims to raise awareness about the devastating effects of climate change on the continent and the urgency to identify and leverage innovative financing instruments to address climate vulnerabilities and transition toward net-zero by 2050. Join us as the AfDB’s chief economist and other members of the bank’s delegation dive into its key findings.
To accompany the launch of the report, the Africa Center has assembled an expert panel of climate financiers, nongovernmental organizations, and economists committed to advancing sustainable growth and development. This high-level panel will discuss actionable recommendations as well as priorities in the preparation and run up to the 27th United Nations Climate Change Conference of the Parties that will take place in Egypt later this year.
This event is the latest to take place in the Africa Center’s Inclusive Climate Finance programing, launched in April 2022 by Nigerian Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
