C2GTalk:联合国非洲经济委员会(UN Economic Commission for Africa)如何利用气候目标促进非洲大陆的繁荣和可持续发展?

2021 年 12 月 20 日

联合国非洲经济委员会(ECA)执行秘书维拉-松韦(Vera Songwe)在接受 "C2GTalk "采访时说,要围绕改变太阳辐射的辩论开展有意义的对话,就必须做到公平、公正和透明,因为非洲必须对改变气候的技术慎之又慎,尤其是在我们不了解其后果的情况下。非洲只有看到这条道路将带来更繁荣的生活、更好的生计,并且这条道路将帮助非洲大陆实现可持续发展目标(SDGs),才能可持续地、公正地就碳排放问题展开对话。

Equity, justice, and transparency are needed to enable meaningful conversations around the the debate on solar radiation modification, because Africa has to be very careful about climate-altering technologies, especially when we do not understand their consequences, says Vera Songwe, executive secretary of the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) during a C2GTalk interview. Africa can only sustainably and justly have the conversation on carbon emissions if it sees that this road leads to a more prosperous life, better livelihoods, and that this road will help the continent meet the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Vera Songwe is the United Nations under-secretary-general and the ninth serving executive secretary of the Economic Commission for Africa (ECA). As executive secretary focusing on "ideas for a prosperous Africa," her organizational reforms have brought to the fore critical issues of macroeconomic stability; development finance, growth and private sector; poverty and inequality; the digital transformation and data; and trade and competitiveness. She is acknowledged for her long-standing track record of providing policy advice on development and her wealth of experience in delivering development results for Africa. A strong advocate of the private sector, Songwe launched a business forum debate at ECA and created, for the first time, a private sector division with a number of significant initiatives.

Before joining the ECA, Songwe held a number of leading roles at the World Bank and International Finance Corporation (IFC). Songwe serves as a non-resident senior fellow at the Brookings Institution. She is also a member of the African Union institutional reform team under the direction of the president of Rwanda, Paul Kagame, and an advisory board member of the African Leadership Network and the Mo Ibrahim Foundation.
