The Africa LEDS Partnership (AfLP) and the Energy Working Group (EWG) of the Low-Emission Development Strategies Global Partnership (LEDS-GP) are co-hosting a webinar on sustainable energy progress in Africa. The webinar offers both an overview of recent developments in clean energy policies, programs, and targets across the region and in-depth case studies on Kenya’s and Cape Verde’s experiences in creating innovative, climate-compatible energy development approaches.  Presenters will outline the targets, policy objectives and implementation programs of these two leading African countries, providing insights into challenges encountered and how they were overcome.

The webinar will be in English and feature the following presentations:

  • Introduction & Moderation Alexander Ochs, Worldwatch Institute/EWG Chair
  • Regional Overview: Low Emission Energy Development in Africa John Yeboah, ECOWAS Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency/EWG co-Chair
  • Learning from Cape Verde’s Renewable Energy Plan Anildo Costa, Consultant to the Government of Cape Verde
  • Learning from Kenya’s Renewable Energy Plan Esther Wang’ombe, Government of Kenya
  • Q&A

This webinar is the final of a three-part series on regional experiences in low-emissions energy program and policy design.  Please visit the LEDS-GP for recordings of the presentations on low emission energy development in Latin America and the Caribbean and Asia.

About LEDS Global Partnership
The Low Emission Development Strategies (LEDS) Global Partnership (GP) was founded in 2011 to enhance coordination, information exchange, and cooperation among countries and international programs working to advance low-emissions, climate-resilient growth. The LEDS GP currently brings together LEDS leaders and practitioners from more than 120 countries and international institutions through innovative peer learning and collaboration forums and networks. For the full list of participants and more information on partnership activities, see ledsgp.org.

 

The Africa LEDS Partnership (AfLP) is a regional network comprising individuals and organizations from the public, private, and non-governmental sectors active in designing, promoting, and implementing LEDS in Africa. The Partnership aims to advance the development of national-level and country-led strategic plans to promote economic growth while reducing greenhouse gas emissions and strengthening resilience to the impacts of climate change in the Africa region.

 

The Energy Working Group (EWG) is an energy sector network of country governments, multilateral institutions, individuals, and non-governmental organizations involved in activities to support the development and implementation of low-emissions energy strategies. The EWG seeks to facilitate international coordination and collaboration among countries in successfully developing low-emissions, climate-resilient energy strategies through an exchange of information, best practices, and advisory services.
