With Africa’s increased commitment to climate action, a Trillion Dollar$ funding has been set to target Sustainable Businesses, as there is pressure on organisations to become Certified Sustainable Businesses.
The Africa Development Bank (AfDB), in partnership with the Global Center on Adaptation (GCA); an international organisation focused on fast-tracking solutions to climate change, has committed Ksh145.5 billion ($996.6 million) to support youth startups in the Africa, as a tool to combat climate change.
Speaking during the Africa Youth Climate Assembly, AfDB’s President, Akinwumi Adesina said youth investment is necessary in ensuring Africa’s growth and stability; “The youth need investment, not empowerment.”
The YouthADAPT programme is an annual competition, organised by AfFB in partnership with GCA and is aimed at paving the way for sustainable job creation through support for entrepreneurship and youth-led innovation in climate change.
The competition allows young entrepreneurs, microenterprises, and SMEs in Africa to submit innovative solutions and business ideas that can drive climate change adaptation and action.
