African countries are disproportionately affected by climate change and are experiencing the devastating effects of slow onset changes in temperatures and other natural hazards. As presented in the latest Africa’s Pulse, the costs of climate change in the region are significant and the cost of inaction is even higher. Nevertheless, African countries can seize this opportunity to transform the economy and create jobs. Policymakers can harness opportunities in the crisis to prioritize programs that support adaptation to improve resilience and deliver more and better jobs in the post-COVID-19 era.
This event will convene distinguished African ministers, leaders, entrepreneurs, civil society organizations and youth to discuss how climate change can be an opportunity to implement low carbon, climate-resilient development solutions, especially those that can accelerate Africa’s economic transformation and provide good paying jobs to its young and innovative population.
