The mineral intensity of the low carbon economy called for by the Paris Agreement on Climate change together with the ongoing multiple countries’ strategies/drives to secure resilient supplies of minerals and metals for their economic and national security needs, represent for Africa an opportunity to unleash its potential in critical minerals and metals value chains including for its economic diversification and to secure its own needs in the future.
Join us for an exchange on the opportunities, enablers, success drivers, and innovative approaches to potentially inform updated stakeholders agendas aimed at supporting Africa to decisively realize its minerals and metal development prospects in the foreseeable period.
