Delivering SDGs and NDCs in Africa:
Clean Energy Investments through Public-Private Collaboration

The event will focus on the broad theme of leveraging public-private collaboration and blended financing toward achievement of the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Agreement and Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) staking out intended climate actions of each country.

The event will showcase the Energy and Environment Partnership (EEP) in Southern and East Africa as a practical case study demonstrating the catalytic impact of targeted public support for private sector-led clean energy development feeding into the SDGs and NDCs.
NDF and EEP donor financing partners will be joined by panelists from the African Development Bank (AfDB), ENERGIA International Network on Gender and Sustainable Energy (ENERGIA), the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).
