Without a doubt, Africa’s inclusive green growth and sustainable development rise is a reality. The conversations at AGES demonstrated policy makers’ and financiers’ commitments to unlocking sustainable finance to build innovative infrastructure projects across Africa. While the growing number of innovative and purpose driven companies engaged gives comfort that the specific nuances of the infrastructure gaps within the continent will be filled.

The AGES has proven itself as a platform where innovation meets partnership and investment opportunities. For Africa, the summit highlights the leading practices that are inspiring change for sustainable green growth, for current and future needs

MALLE FOFANA GGGI

There was some good and unique content in some of the sessions (e.g., e-mobility ecosystem) The project pitches were also very worthwhile. There were varying needs/ask across the group and it catered to the needs of different investors. Overall, I found it very useful in building networks and getting a better understanding of some on the local climate action linkages e.g., Wesgro.
