The African Green Deal

With the support of the AfDB and under the leadership of Prof Jeffrey Sachs, CCSI and SDSN will design the high level energy transition strategy for the African continent. It will look at how the energy matrix should evolve in line with the Paris Agreement objectives considering the stranding asset risk and its implications for early planning as well as the realization of the renewable energy potential seizing the momentum offered by the market, international finance, global diplomacy and the desire to recover sustainably from the pandemic. This work will conclude with a policy dialogue and engagement with the Heads of States of the African Union in January 2021.
