Johannesburg: Moral Money Summit Africa
Unlocking capital to drive sustainable growth
Estimates suggest that US$1.6tn is required this decade to deliver on Africa’s Paris Agreement commitments. Where will this money come from? This is a continent packed with opportunity. Excepting a few countries, it emits a fraction of the carbon of developed nations. It is home to the world’s fastest growing population, a huge carbon sink, and a promising carbon offset market.
But Africa is unique. While significant efforts are being made to mobilise capital, build capacity, and boost sustainable development, the landscape is complex, much more needs to be done and fast. Are the key stakeholders stepping up to play their part?
Moral Money Summit Africa will explore how to accelerate sustainable growth across the region. This event is an opportunity to connect with policy makers, NGOs and thought-leaders, financiers, multilateral institutions, corporates and investors. This comprehensive one day event will delve into what business, policy and investment leaders need to do now to fast-forward sustainable outcomes in energy production, agriculture, and human rights.
