This book explores the concept of greening industrialization and issues and considerations surrounding it through the lens of Sub-Saharan Africa.
The book critically examines the concept of greening industrialization and describes the progress and data challenges of monitoring the Sustainable Development Goals confronting African countries. The chapters summarize the policy and programme literature focused on eight policy regimes essential for greening industrialization and identify opportunities for greening industrial policies. The authors lay out a research agenda that would inform, enable and support greening industrialization in Sub-Saharan Africa and provide an overview of green industrial plans that include climate strategies, energy efficiency strategies and green industry assessments.
This book will be of great interest to students, scholars, policy makers and planners in the fields of Sub-Saharan Africa development and African environmentalism.
