Africa going on the defence: Investments aimed at containing the ill effects of climate change
For most African nations, climate change is a matter of adaptation and not mitigation. Containing the continent’s carbon footprint will have significant policy and investment implications, but putting up defences against an inevitable rise in temperatures will be a top priority. In this webinar we give our view on how global warming will affect African economic development and which areas of climate change adaptation and mitigation we consider to be most important in South Africa, Nigeria, Kenya, and Ghana.
We will be repeating the same webinar to cater for the difference in time zones between APAC, EMEA and the Americas:

- EMEA – Monday 29th November | 09:00 GMT (11:00 SAST)
