Charting the pathway towards an inclusive green transition (in the margins of the Africa Climate Summit)

From 4th to 6th September 2023, the Africa Climate Summit (ACS) will take place in Nairobi, Kenya. This year, the summit is themed “Driving Green Growth & Climate Finance Solutions for Africa and the World”. In the context of ACS, the #SmartDevelopmentFund, a GIZ project co-funded by the EU and the BMZ, will host an interactive event entitled “Charting the pathway towards an inclusive green transition”.

The event will include a panel discussion, bringing together leading experts from the digital and green spheres, to explore the unique role of local digital innovations in advancing climate action. The event will also involve the announcement of the Digital and Green Innovation (DGIx), an acceleration programme that aims to identify, refine, and scale unique solutions that leverage digital transformation and local expertise in tackling pressing climate challenges. Find out more about the DGIx programme by attending our event on site or online.
