Africa's private sector commits to scaling up climate action pathways

Africa’s private sector has affirmed its commitment to scale up climate action pathways for resilience and green industrialisation of Africa. This is a collaboration of the Kenya Private Sector Alliance (KEPSA), the African Climate Foundation (ACF), the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) and the Africa Business Council (ABC). The commitment was made through the Africa Private Sector Commitment to Scaling up pathways to climate resilience and green and call to action through a statement signed by more than 20 private sector entities across Africa at the high-level side event during the ongoing 28th Conference of the Parties (COP 28), in Dubai. Africa’s private sector, which accounts for 80 per cent of total production, 67 per cent of investment, and employs 90 per cent of the working-age population, is crucial in addressing global warming. However, the continent faces challenges due to its high levels of social and economic vulnerability. Africa has an opportunity to be part of global value chains while at the same time establishing resilient continental value chains and supply chains that will support green development,” said Faith Ngige, Climate Business Information Network Coordinator at KEPSA. Ms Ngige added: “Engaging the private sector to invest in climate action as substantial active implementers and solution providers is essential if we are to accelerate the transformation to low-carbon resilient societies." https://www.standardmedia.co.ke/environment-climate/article/2001487473/africas-private-sector-commits-to-scaling-up-climate-action-pathways

                  This commitment from Africa's private sector is a positive step towards addressing climate change and promoting sustainable development on the continent. It shows that businesses are recognizing the importance of taking action to mitigate climate change and are willing to play their part in finding solutions.
