    De-Carbonizing Economic Development in Sub-Saharan Africa

    Energy demand in countries of Sub-Saharan Africa is projected to increase drastically in the next decades. Against the backdrop of the Paris Agreement, a key question for developing countries is how to forego carbon-intensive development steps and thereby achieve sustainable development. To answer this question, this project will trace the most recent carbonization dynamics and analyze feasible climate change mitigation actions that can help to lower emissons without compromising economic development.
