Building Climate Resilience

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 world 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.
