Pro-development energy transitions
Smart and just climate strategies must account for the realities, priorities, and ambitions of energy-poor countries


Africa and large parts of emerging Asia generate a tiny fraction of global emissions but will suffer the worst consequences of climate change. These regions need far greater wealth and infrastructure to adapt to extreme weather, drought, and rising temperatures — which means more energy, not less. They must develop low-carbon transition strategies while simultaneously meeting rapidly growing demand, expanding energy access, and powering economic opportunity for billions of people.


The global energy transition will not be easy – and it will not look the same in all countries. Getting it right will require new perspectives on policy, technology, finance, and equity.

Our Approach

The Hub explores ways that smart energy policy, innovation, and financing strategies can fight energy poverty, bolster climate adaptation and resilience, and put countries on a path to a prosperous low-carbon future.
