(15:45 - 16:45 EET) Mozambique in the Driving Seat of Southern Africa Energy Transition
08 November 2022
3:45 pm - 4:45 pm
Pavilion #126 / Organized by The Government of Mozambique, Enabel - Belgian Development Agency, and the Tony Blair Institute
Discussions around energy transition tend to focus on high energy consuming and high emitting countries. However, if developing countries with currently low energy access and consumption levels are left behind in the energy transition, their annual contribution to global emissions could grow from 25% in 2020 to more than 75% by 2050. Without a new global approach to supporting energy transition in these countries, this trajectory will make it impossible to avert the worst of climate change. This high-level side event will zoom into the specific case of Mozambique and will highlight the significant role the country’s unique renewable energy assets can play in the domestic, regional and global energy transition, and will discuss approaches for supporting and accelerating the country’s green energy ambitions.
