Africa has been losing from 5 to 15% of its GDP per capita growth because of climate change and its related impacts, but needs about $1.6 trillion between 2022 and 2030 to meet its nationally determination contributions, says African Development Bank Group Acting Chief Economist and Vice President Kevin Urama.
It is a fact that we must save our environment from mega- hazardous carbon emission, ensure restoration and smooth energy transition. However, it is a colossal mistake to allow the trending geopolitics of global energy transition to dwarf our thinking that swift total decarbonization will save the world. Rather, that idea of decarbonizing the world in a swift of an eye will lead the world to hell before saving it.
