The Department of Energy Studies and Centre for Cyber-Physical Food, Energy & Water Systems, Faculty of Engineering and the Built Environment, invites you to a webinar entitled: “A Just Transition for Africa” by Lungile Mashele

Abstract

Africa finds itself at the precipice of an energy revolution. From Cape to Cairo, nations are increasing generating capacity – however will this be a just transition for Africa?

The energy politics of Africa’s development are increasingly evident. There exist trade-offs between energy, natural endowments, technical demands, development and the environment – however some would like us to believe it’s green or nothing at all.

If this transition is going to be legitimate and address colonial errors, it will be people centred, it will be fair, it will be led by young people and it will address energy poverty.
