    Climate Adaptation Talks – Episode 3: Caroline Mwongera

The next two years will – and must – bring major changes in global climate action. Our climate action and green transition team wants to contribute to ambitious, fair and effective responses to the climate crisis, promote a green COVID-19 recovery and explore the European and African politics of green transition and renewable energy deployment.


Our work


Topics we look at include:

  • Climate finance in Africa-Europe relations and international cooperation
  • The geopolitics and external dimensions of EU climate, energy and green transition policies – including the European Green Deal
  • Management of transboundary climate impacts – focusing on adaptation and resilience
  • Locally-led green transition and adaptation

The climate action and green transition workstream is part of the ‘sustainable African economies and climate action’ cluster.
