AfricaHardball: Political and other risks in a year of re-emergence and high tension

AfricaHardball January2022

25 January 2022 to 25 January 2022

12h00 to 13h30 GMT, Online

A frank examination of the political pressures and flashpoints – from sovereign debt to PPA renegotiations – that may impact on power sector development in 2022.

This online Africa Investment Exchange (AIX) meeting will examine:

  • Key flashpoints around the continent – Sahel, the Horn, North Africa (Western Sahara and Libya) and other problem areas;
  • Upcoming electoral and other politics – including Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria and South Africa;
  • Climate change impacts and opportunities – will the money flow in 2022? Will degraded environments drive more conflict?
  • Economies’ emergence from Covid and other crises – a positive year ahead for who?
  • Risk mitigation – is the financial architecture fit for purpose?
