Webinar Series: Energy for sustainable development in Africa in the post-COVID19 world – looking for the New Normal

Webinar 2: Sustainable Energy for Africa: transition through growth. How to boost output, improve access and reduce impact on the nature and society? Technologies, scenarios, strategies, sources of finance and business models.

Africa, particularly sub-Saharan Africa, has generally low levels of socio-economic development and energy usage. The COVID-19 outbreak and its consequent economic downturn present additional challenges and pose questions requiring urgent answers. Success of the pandemic measures depend upon, among other elements, on a strategic vision reflecting current situation and future uncertainties; and aligning interests of all stakeholders. In order to build such strategic vision, we have invited leading experts in our webinars to facilitate information gathering and to generate ideas for further work on strategies development and stakeholders’ engagement necessary for the continent’s energy transition in the post-COVID-19 world.

We expect that the webinars will result in collecting comprehensive information and will generate ideas for further work on the strategies development and stakeholders’ engagement that are important and necessary for Africa’s successful energy transition that will meet the needs and priorities of all its citizens and propels its sustainable development.

Through the second webinar, we will assess existing tools and future uncertainties with the purpose of generating strategic scenarios – realistic, resilient and capable of providing holistic and leasing solutions matching interests of the key stakeholders in various African regions.

In order to build such strategic vision, we have invited leading experts in our webinars to facilitate information gathering and to generate ideas for further work on strategies development and stakeholders’ engagement necessary for the continent’s energy transition in the post-COVID-19 world.

The first webinar “COVID-19 impact actions across Africa. First-hand information from policymakers and leading experts” will reveal data and information on the multifaceted effects of COVID-19 in several regions of sub-Saharan Africa and responses considered there. Particular attention will be paid to identifying impacts on various stakeholders’ groups.
