African Development Bank
Non-fossil to fossil energy ratio and scaling up climate investment in all sectors
|Some progress||For every $1 the AfDB provides to fossil fuels, $2.5 goes to renewables & $3.6 goes to T&D between 2016-2019.|
The African Development Bank (AfDB) has seen a reduction in its ratio of renewable energy lending compared to fossil fuel lending due to an increase in fossil fuel financing in 2019.
For every $1 the AfDB provides to fossil fuels, $2.5 goes to renewables & $3.6 goes to T&D between 2016-2019.
Mitigation financing has remained constant and adaptation financing has seen a large uptick. In 2017, the AfDB stated that 100% of energy lending went towards renewable energy.
