A green economy transition

Catalysing investments is key to enable Africa’s just transition

Climate change is accelerating the need for a just transition. The shift toward a Green Economy is gradually taking place on the African continent where governments are developing national plans and laying strategies to adapt their economies and growth models toward achieving the Sustainable Development Goals of 2030, and the Paris Climate Change Agreement.

Green Economy is defined as ‘Sustainable development without degrading the environment. It is low carbon, resource efficient and socially inclusive. It does not replace sustainable development, but creates a new focus on the economy, investment, capital and infrastructure, employment and skills and positive social and environmental outcomes,’ as described by the UN Environmental Programme.

7 main sectors of the green economy

African cities and green-tech start-ups are spearheading the necessary change but require more capital to grow. Therefore, catalysing investments across local and international stakeholders is key to fast track the development of projects and infrastructure to enable Africa’s green economy transition.

​This new era presents a massive opportunity for projects to scale up and green industrialisation, which will have a significant impact on environmental sustainability and economic growth.
