Over 1,000 of Africa’s investors, policy makers, and financial specialists gathered at the AGGF to discuss green growth and climate resilient strategy, based on best practices internationally. General of Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) Director, Frank Rijsberman asserts green building is the optimal way to handle climate change.
