Financial Architecture for a Green and Climate-Resilient Africa
Climate change ripples through all layers of African economies, distorts fiscal and monetary policy, affects key sectors, and devastates livelihoods and firm activity. The persistent funding gap for green and climate finance initiatives remains a significant challenge; however, there is still room for African governments, private sector stakeholders, and development agencies to optimize the continent’s ability to attract, retain, and scale green and climate finance to tackle these pressing issues.
On May 11, Anzetse delivered a keynote at a webinar hosted by the Stockholm Environment Institute and the Swedish Development Research Network. She explored the economic effects of climate change and how intelligently re-crafting financial architecture can aggregate the positive effects of green and climate finance towards economic resilience in Africa.
