10 April 2014 - 11 April 2014
The Global Commission on the Economy and Climate's flagship project, the New Climate Economy, aims to help governments, businesses and society to make more informed decisions on how to balance their aspirations for economic growth with combating the effects of climate change.
The workshop, taking place on the 10-11 April, 2014 in Nairobi, Kenya, will bring together and draw on the experiences of key decision makers from across Africa and the world. They will be joined by leading academic and business experts, and are tasked to develop a set of key insights that can serve as an input to a set of recommendations for action, to be put forward at this year's UN Climate Summit.
Purpose of the workshop
By drawing on the experience of key decision makers and implementers across Africa, the meeting will explore:
• The extent to which low-carbon options are being considered when expanding energy access;
• The motivating factors behind pursuit of such options;
• How low-carbon options for energy access fare against other political goals such as affordability, inclusive access and energy security.
Further information on the Workshop can be found in the Background Note.
