GLF Africa 2022 Digital Conference

Instagram: In Africa, how can a just energy transition be achieved?

Jul 28, 2022 | 3:00 PM EAT - 4:00 PM EAT


This session is over.
The issue of energy in Africa is only growing in political concern. Some African leaders are still considering to invest in gas and oil exploration despite climate experts insisting that countries should instead focus on expanding their renewable energy sectors, to avoid more environmental havoc while getting more of the continent onto the grid. How can these different agendas be reconciled in a socially responsible way? On 28 July at 14:00 CEST / 15:00 EAT this youth-led GLF Live will welcome Hamira Kobusingye, a climate and health activist from Uganda, and Davina Ngei, the communications manager at Global Women’s Network for the Energy Transition from Kenya, who will discuss what it will take to achieve a just energy transition for Africa.
