Yemi Osinbajo, former vice-president, says the Africa Climate Week & Summit will create investment opportunities in Africa.

The summit, scheduled to take place in Nairobi, Kenya from September 4 to 6, is aimed at championing a positive climate-compatible vision for the continent.

Osinbajo, who is the global advisor for the Global Energy Alliance for People and Planet (GEAPP), said the summit will boost investments in clean energy and innovation in Africa.

He said the collaboration between governments and stakeholders will drive sustainable economic development for the continent.


“The summit has put the opportunity to invest in Africa’s green energy, technology and innovation resource at the forefront of the global discussion,” he said.

“I am delighted to be working with GEAPP, forging the partnerships and collaboration that can unlock this system change, hand in hand with governments, communities, funders and business across Africa and the world.

“By working together, we can expedite the transition to clean energy and foster sustainable economic growth essential for Africa and the global community.”


Simon Harford, GEAPP head, said the summit will address how African countries and developed economies can collaborate to accelerate the transition to green energy.

Harford said the climate crisis is real and should be treated as urgent, adding that the organisation is actively working to make a positive difference.

“GEAPP supports African governments as they work to place just, green energy transitions front and centre of the Summit and to collaborate on progress,” he said.

“The crisis is not impending. The crisis is here right now for all of us. Look at the impact of climate change on agriculture, livelihoods, and people across every country.


“This is real and urgent, and GEAPP is determined to make a difference. In our first 18 months of operation, GEAPP has begun actively working in DRC, Ethiopia, Malawi, Nigeria, South Africa, Sierra Leone, and Uganda.

“This Summit offers an important opportunity to commit to concrete actions and closer collaboration between Africa and the rest of the world.”
