Difficult questions were raised at the Effective cooperation for a Green Africa (ECOGA) congress in Klimahaus Bremerhaven 8° Ost, in regards to Africa and the continent’s ability to combat hunger without further impacts on the ecological balance. This 1st African congress, held from 12th – 13th September was in cooperation with the German Climate Foundation and the Free Hanseatic City of Bremen and brought together international experts from NGOs, companies, universities and international organisations to discuss the potentials and obstacles of green growth in Africa.

Opting to focus on the positive aspects of Africa, speaker after another sought to dispel the commonly held negative notion of Africa. While the continent has its challenges, it also was showcased as a key player on the international scene as far as green growth goes. It was clear that Africa has great potential to sustainably shape the upcoming stages of development thanks to its resources.
