Low-carbon and climate resilient industrial development in Africa: impact report
A new report highlights the impact of a project implemented by the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) with funding from the Government of Japan. The project tackles the challenges posed by climate change by promoting low-carbon and climate-resilient (LCCR) industrial development in Africa. The project assisted four African countries – Egypt, Kenya, Senegal and South Africa – to shift their production cycles to greener and more resource-efficient practices. It demonstrated the opportunities and benefits of low-carbon and climate-resilient development in productive industries through the promotion and introduction of green industry policy instruments, adaptation and low-carbon technologies and of resource efficient and cleaner production (RECP) practices and techniques.
