Build Back Cleaner, Greener & Better

Climate change is among the greatest impediments to development.
Climate impacts can push 100 million people into poverty by 2030 – unless we act right now.

View the Norfund Conference 2020 part 1 and 2 here:

At a time when the impacts of the Covid-19 dominate our thoughts it is important that we start planning for how to build back cleaner, greener and better.   

Join us on the 1st and 3rd of September in discussing what must be done to meet the urgent need for increased energy-access in developing countries – with the aim to reduce poverty – while incorporating climate action. When done correctly, climate action can unlock new economic opportunities and create much needed jobs.
