What is it?

This report aims to scope existing knowledge and emerging trends on the topic of youth employment, low-carbon transitions, and the future of work in Africa, and facilitate engagement with key stakeholders in this field, including youth, policy actors, civil society, and other relevant stakeholders to develop an inclusive research agenda.


Participants across all groups critiqued the role of multilateral organizations and Global North investors in dictating narratives on the low-carbon transition in South Africa. The ability to shape narratives around the low-carbon position was perceived to be intimately related to capital. Multi-lateral organizations and countries that offered funding or financial support to South Africa dictate the pace and timelines of the low-carbon transition.
