Technical report: Nordic Green to Scale for countries / Africa

Unlocking the potential of climate solutions in Kenya and Ethiopia

Nordic Green to Scale for countries zooms in on two regions: Kenya and Ethiopia in East Africa and the Baltic States, Poland and Ukraine in Europe. This report presents the emission reduction potential of 10 selected solutions for the two African target countries. The study highlights the costs, savings and co-benefits of implementing the solutions as well as makes policy recommendations for capturing the potential.

The technical analysis was conducted by Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) Africa Centre, in close collaboration with African organisations and networks on key environmental and development issues.

The project was carried out by the Finnish Innovation Fund Sitra, together with partners CICERO, CONCITO and Institute of Sustainability Studies at the University of Iceland. The project is part of the Nordic Council of Ministers’ Prime Ministers’ Initiative Nordic Solutions.
