Climate change and green growth strategic framework: operationalising Africa’s voice - action plan 2021-2025

Climate change threatens sustainable development in Africa, particularly among poor and highly vulnerable countries which have contributed least to greenhouse gas emissions. The African Development Bank Group (hereafter the “Bank” or “AfDB”) has had a longstanding commitment to action on climate change and green growth, to ensure that development across the continent brings about growth that is not only economically empowering but also decarbonized, climate-friendly, environmentally sustainable, and socially inclusive.
