Africa contributes under four percent of global greenhouse gas emissions but is the most susceptible to climate change. Weather patterns have disrupted biodiversity, increased the strength and frequency of cyclones, precipitated food insecurity, accelerated population displacement, increased water scarcity, and made electricity supply erratic. The vulnerability has heightened the need for a speedy transition to a green economy to mitigate these adverse effects. 

Africa's abundant renewable energy resources supported by sound energy policies present excellent opportunities for the continent to meet its energy needs. Africa needs an energy mix that allows for sustainable, resilient, and affordable electricity supply to meet its demand and accelerate industrialization.
