About the Africa Green Growth Forum

The Africa Green Growth Forum is a series of events bringing together investors, policy makers and practitioners from across the continent to share experiences in green growth and climate resilient development.

The Mega Concert starts in

With increasingly rapid changes in the earth’s climate, and its severe impact on Africa’s development, there is an urgent need to expand the sharing of sustainable development tools and experience. Such efforts will only be successful if Africa joins together to share best practice, mobilise resources and foster investment and innovation in green growth. This will be essential to achieve the goals Africa has set for itself through the African Union’s Agenda 2063.

The inaugural Africa Green Growth Forum is being organised to advance these efforts and draw attention to the importance of sustainable economic transformation and signal green growth as a priority for the continent.

The Africa Green Growth Forum will take place from 26-30 November 2018 in Kigali and is being organised by the Government of Rwanda with support from a range of partners from across the continent and around the world.

Meet the Organisers

The Africa Green Growth Forum is organised by a range of partners working for green growth in Rwanda and across Africa, including the Ministry of Environment, Ministry of Infrastructure, Ministry of Trade and Industry, Rwanda Environment Management Authority, Rwanda Green Fund, Meteo Rwanda, Rwanda Housing Authority, Rwanda Green Building Organisation, the Global Green Growth Institute, the United Nations Development Programme and One UN Rwanda.

The Event

Hosted by a number of institutions and organisations working for green growth in Rwanda and across the continent, the Africa Green Growth Forum will share national and international best practice and build partnerships amongst key stakeholders working for a Green Africa.

Highlights include the Africa Green Growth Investment Forum, Rwanda Green Growth Roundtable, Green Growth Champions Dinner, Rwanda Green Growth Policy Dialogue, an African Circular Economy Alliance event, a Sustainable Cities Workshop, an E-Mobility event, and the Rwanda Green Growth Concert and Awards.
