Next Generation Africa Climate Business Plan​


Since its launch in 2015, the original Africa Climate Business Plan supported 346 projects with more than US$33 billion in World Bank financing over the past six years. It has become a critical support mechanism to help client countries institutionalize climate action and meet their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), submitted under the Paris Agreement.

As the largest financier of climate action in Africa, the World Bank will use the Next Generation Africa Climate Business Plan to build on the successes of the original plan and apply lessons learned.

Over the next six years (2021–26), the World Bank will work with African countries to tackle climate change in multiple ways, including by helping cities develop in clean ways, making climate smart agriculture practices the norm, improving clean, green, and affordable energy, and putting people and communities at the forefront in order to improve lives and protect the future.
