This landmark technological measure will enable the country to reduce its carbon emissions significantly.

This very important announcement, as well as AFD’s financial role in promoting the fight against climate change in SA, will be revealed at a press conference. Visiting AFD CEO Jean-Michel Severino will sign the accession letter to the CCS charter. He and CEF CEO Mputumi Damane will also be available for press enquiries.
