The Africa Roundtable N°3
Europe and Africa: Together for a Just Green Transition
Conference: The Africa Roundtable N°3
November 30, 2022
Given the ongoing war in Ukraine and disruptions in global trade, many African countries want to increase their agricultural output and become self-sufficient. African countries hold a vastly underused potential for green technologies such as solar, hydropower and green hydrogen. This should can be harnessed to realise electrification, growth, and exports. Despite historic financial commitments made at the summit, COP27 left many observers feeling that issues concerning Africa fell short. Following the World Climate Conference, we discussed partnership-based solutions and models for future cooperation between Europe and Africa in climate protection at the third edition of The Africa Roundtable.

High-Level Side Event
Food security for millions of people worldwide is severely threatened due to the many overlapping crises, and some regions in Africa are experiencing food emergencies. Simultaneously, women and children are disproportionately affected by malnutrition and undernourishment. The side event focused on the lack of focus on the role of women in food systems, women as change makers in food and nutrition security and the missed opportunity for global health.
