Key takeaways & next steps:

  • There is a huge need for investment as the African continent, including Namibia, requires significant capital mobilization, estimated at around $500 billion in climate finance, to achieve its climate goals by 2030. 
  • Namibia is exploring the production of green hydrogen as a visionary project, recognizing the potential for renewable energy sources like hydrogen to play a vital role in the future energy landscape. 
  • Multilateral partnerships, including collaborations with governments, development finance institutions, and the private sector, are crucial in shaping Namibia’s green economic recovery and facilitating investment in renewable energy.
