Truly sustainable development is impossible without the full involvement of local communities. Local communities are starved of financial resources, while climate finance providers struggle to put their resources into action. This conversation will expose the challenges of getting funding on the ground, and explore opportunities to resolve this dilemma.

Join us for an inspiring and interactive discussion on energy poverty in sub-Saharan Africa, where we will explore solutions to resolving the complex energy challenges facing rapidly urbanising cities in the region.

Perspectives from South Africa, Senegal and Cameroon including from Sonita Mbah from NextGEN: GEN’s youth platform.
