Africa's energy future demands a delicate balancing act: ensuring abundant, reliable energy for development while prioritizing long-term environmental sustainability. This session tackles the specific challenges and opportunities surrounding financing for existing and future oil & gas projects, while acknowledging the vital role of renewable energy in the long-term vision.   Innovative financial instruments like blended finance and green bonds will be explored as tools for responsible development as well as strategies to attract private capital and ensure project sustainability while mitigating environmental and social risks. Opportunities for existing projects to adopt cleaner technologies and improve efficiency will also be identified. Within the context of global energy trends, climate change concerns, and technological advancements on the viability of oil & gas projects, the panel will examine the role of oil & gas revenue in financing the transition to a more sustainable energy mix. The session aims to encourage open and constructive discussions about the role of oil & gas in Africa's future energy mix while focusing on long-term sustainability.
