Join the Policy Leader Fellows to discuss their work in progress.

The panel will explore how African countries can sustainably finance climate action despite the fiscal constraints currently facing many developing countries partly due to the economic impact of Covid-19. The speakers will also discuss the current 100 billion financing mechanism for developing countries and how it could be improved post- 2020.

The session will also look at India’s success in renewable energy growth and vital lessons for West African states to transition to clean energy.
