Africa has low rates of renewable energy use, but communities are working to change that
As part of the Innovation for Adaptation to Climate Change (INNOVACC) project, a call for applications has been launched for doctoral students from universities in Cameroon. The five candidates selected by the initiative in May 2022 will conduct research on climate-related issues in the northern part of this Central African country.
To be implemented in five countries including Kenya, Cameroon, Nigeria, Morocco, and Botswana, the GermanWatch-supported project will ensure a move towards renewable energy is inclusive and people-centred. But there is a danger that the big shift from fossil fuel could still be controlled by the big conglomerate, leaving the poor behind.
The Guard-Africa Initiative will catalyse conversations towards the accelerating implementation of the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) in Kenya, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Rwanda, Niger, Cameroon, Zambia, Botswana, Morocco, Nigeria, Ivory Coast and Gabon.
