Kigali, Rwanda, November 14 (Infosplusgabon) - Rwanda will host the first  Africa Green Growth Forum, bringing together over 1,000 participants, including policymakers and financial specialists from across the continent to share experience in green growth and climate resilient development from 26-30 November this year, it was officially announced here Wednesday.

 

 

In a statement made available to Infosplusgabon, the event organisers said the week-long forum aims to shed light on the importance of sustainable economic transformation and signal green growth as a priority for Africa.

 

It will also focus on encouraging private sector investment in green growth, improving the understanding and use of finance as a tool for climate resilience, building partnerships between stakeholders working in Africa’s green growth sector and providing a platform for partners to engage and build relationships that accelerate the green growth agenda.

 

The Forum is organised by a range of partners including the Government of Rwanda and the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI), which helped the country to access the Green Climate Fund (GCF).

 

Established by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), GCF assists developing countries in adaptation and mitigation to counter climate change.

 

Other supporters of the Forum are the United Nations Development Programme and One UN Rwanda, Climate Investment Funds, the World Bank, the African Development Bank, the African Centre for Climate and Sustainable Development, the Global Environment Facility, the Global Innovation Lab for Climate Finance, NDC Partnership, and the African Circular Economy  Alliance, the statement said.

 

Commenting on the event, Rwandan Minister of Environment, Vincent Biruta, said that for Africa to achieve the goals it has set for itself, "our development must be clean, green and climate resilient. This requires us to share knowledge, experience and bring policymakers and investors together to turn ideas into reality."

 

The Forum will be held under the theme ‘For a Green and Climate Resilient Africa’.
