This high level online forum will bring leading government and business figures, international and development financial institutions, and academia together, and get the perspectives of both the public and private sectors on sustainable development and green investment in Africa. We will share experiences, innovative approaches and opportunities to mobilise private and public capital towards the Green Transition in Africa, as well as showcasing how green and sustainable business models are profitable, create jobs and generate wealth while contributing to achieving the world’s climate objectives.
Topics covered will include the role of the European Union and its Member States in curbing climate change across the world, with a focus on Africa; how international financial institutions are responding to this challenge through targeted, innovative instruments and enhanced outreach; and how private sector models are changing to become greener and more sustainable.
The participation is free of charge. The conference language will be English, Portugues and French with simultaneous translation. Break-out session in the afternoon will be in English without translation.
