Africa in a just transition – investing in a sustainable recovery

Monday 29 November 2021

The Royal African Society 2021 Annual Lecture delivered by UN Deputy Secretary-General Ms. Amina J Mohammed.


One of the main issues at COP 26 was how to assure a just energy transition for poor and developing countries, including those in Africa, in the face of growing challenges from climate change and economic inequality. The UN was in the centre of the discussions in Glasgow. To mark the Royal African Society’s 120th Anniversary, DSG Amina Mohammed will deliver the 2021 Annual Lecture on ‘Africa in a just transition – Investing in a sustainable recovery.’

Amina J. Mohammed was born in Nigeria, and has had a distinguished career as both a national and international public servant, including spells as a minister for the environment in Nigeria and in a range of roles at the United Nations.
