Green Deal with Africa

Berlin, 31/01/2020: Gabriel Felbermayr, president of Institute for the World Economy ifw, and Stefan Liebing discussed in the article of “The future of German energy supply is in Africa” that in Germany the energy transition has little chance – unless new pathways will be taken. For example, electricity could come from the Sahara.

In the newspaper Tagesspiegel a guest article on a “Green Deal with Africa” focused on the same theme. Europe must link its climate policy with climate policy in Africa.
