Africa50, Green Climate Fund, AfDB to develop Sahel solar
The heads of Africa50, the Green Climate Fund (GCF) and the African Development Bank (AfDB) have signed an agreement to collaborate on the bank’s ambitious Desert to Power Programme for 10,000MW of solar projects in the Sahel. The Desert to Power initiative aims to develop 10,000MW of solar power systems across the Sahel, providing electricity to 250m people, including 90m off-grid. The initiative will also help protect the Great Green Wall of trees established as a buffer against desertification from being cut down for energy.
