Innovating in ClimateTech to Drive Sustainable Development

Despite Africa contributing <4% of global greenhouse gas emissions, the continent and its people will be disproportionately affected by the impact of climate change. Innovative ClimateTech solutions are supporting not just emissions mitigation in growing African economies, but also supporting climate adaptation to make African businesses and communities more climate-resilient in the face of extreme weather events and shifting climate patterns. Our panel discussion will also highlight how these solutions are paving the way for economic growth and improving living standards. Join us for a thought-provoking conversation on how innovating and investing in African ClimateTech is driving sustainable growth and competitiveness.
