China could drive Africa's renewable energy revolution, report says

JOHANNESBURG, April 2 (Reuters) - China has a unique opportunity to drive forward an energy revolution in Africa, but it must first reverse nearly two decades of neglect of green power investments there, research from Boston University showed on Tuesday.
Beijing has emerged as the continent's biggest bilateral trading partner since the start of the century and has financed billions of dollars worth of large-scale infrastructure projects.

      Hi, Joseph Maina. Thanks for posting a climate review on our platform. However, this review should not be directed to Reuters, but to a company or an organization that needs to be aware of this. The idea behind our climate reviews is to make companies and organizations aware that they could (and should) do better. If enough people agree to your review, we will contact the company and ask them to join the climate dialogue. Read more here: https://www.wedonthavetime.org/our-community#guide

            Send the climate love to China. Otherwise it's a beautiful collaboration that would be good for us all. China's potential to spearhead Africa's renewable energy transformation presents a promising opportunity for environmental progress. By prioritizing green power investments, China can catalyze sustainable development across the continent, mitigating carbon emissions and fostering a cleaner, greener future for both Africa and the planet.
