In cognizance of the eminent threats of fossil fuels to the sustainability of our planet, the switch from fossils to renewables has become the global agenda in the field of energy and sustainability. While this transition is necessary to address global warming and climate change, it is also noted to have enormous risks and uncertainties. The African continent is embattled with tackling energy poverty and is caught between meeting demand with new renewable sources whiles switching from existing fossil fuels at the same time. In this webinar, the PAUWES Climate Change and Environmental Community (PCCEC) has invited TRANSrisk co-principal investigator Dr Jenny Lieu from Science Technology Policy Research, University of Sussex (SPRU) to shed some light on the transition pathways and the associated risks with emphasis on the African context.
