Opportunities and considerations for Africa in a net-zero future
Unchecked climate change will see a marked deterioration in Africa’s economic growth, productivity, trade, and competitiveness. Unless immediate action is taken, the African continent will be among the worst-affected regions in the world. There are, however, key opportunities that underpin Africa’s economic potential as the continent shifts towards a net-zero future.
Inspired by the Deloitte Turning Point series of reports, this thought piece explores:
- The challenges and costs that Africa may face due to inaction towards climate change
- The physical damages, impact on crucial sectors and socio-economic implications of unchecked climate change
- Seven opportunities that underpin the continent’s economic potential in a net-zero future, and key considerations to help enable these.
