The session will address how sovereign solutions can offer rural development and green jobs to communities, youth, communities, smallholders and women across Africa with limited or no access to financial solutions. It will also address how access to climate finance by the private sector, including small and medium enterprises, can help communities adapt to the climate crisis in East Africa. This can be done through improved agricultural practices like the provision of solar-powered irrigation systems, agroforestry, improved livestock rearing, the conservation of natural ecosystems, and monitoring, verification and reporting.
