The current global crisis occasioned by the war in Ukraine has led to a sharp increase in food and oil prices. For Africa, this is a major concern, as its projected push a further 1.8 million Africans into extreme poverty in 2022.
The African Centre for a Green Economy, is delighted to convene a high level dialogue to deliberate on the impacts of the current global oil crisis on achieving Africa's just transition.
This webinar seeks to respond to the following questions:-
=>What does the global oil and gas crisis mean for the climate agenda and Africa’s economic transition?
=>How are African countries responding to the global crisis?
=> What governance mechanisms are required for African economies to be more resilient to such global crisis?
=> How will the outcomes of COP27 be affected by the current crisis?
