newly launched African Climate and Development Initiative at
UCT has a tough challenge ahead of it. The initiative is seeking
to map a pathway for Africa that maintains economic growth,
while switching to a much lower carbon emissions path than has been typical of
other developing regions. All this is taking place against the backdrop of a steeply
increasing African population and in one of the regions that will be most affected by
climate change in the years ahead.
