(11:00 - 12:00 EET) Accelerated Climate Actions on Industrial Decarbonization in Africa
16 November 2022
11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Pavilion #126 / Organized by United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO)
The event will be in the form of a panel discussion on the role of industrial energy efficiency in the African countries’ NDCs - key priorities, high-impact sectors, barriers, and gaps.
The panelists will elaborate on the need for more climate-resilient industries that will remain competitive, save scarce natural resources, protect the environment, and be prepared for future climate change impacts. The panel will look into solutions for strengthening regional efforts to accelerate the actions to boost investments in industrial energy efficiency. The decarbonization of the Rwandan tea industry will be presented as a successful example of dedicated actions and priorities featured in the country’s NDC and the link to the COVID-19 recovery efforts.
