Climate and Energy in Africa: What we're getting wrong

Via the SDGs and COP, the world is committed to tackling the big global crises of poverty and climate change. But the policies for fostering net zero emissions, universal access to energy, and full employment are confused when it comes to Africa, a region that will soon be home to one in four people. Todd Moss will lay out the shortcomings to the dominant approaches and outline more effective ways to support both a greener planet and prosperity for everyone.
