The Sustainable Africa Initiative

Led by Climate Risk Research Foundation, the Linux Foundation’s OS-Climate, Generation Humanity, Tony Elumelu Foundation, Sustainable Solutions for Green Growth, and a growing number of members, the goal of the Consortium is to provide passionate and highly educated university students, professors, business owners, institutions, NGOs, and government officials throughout Africa with the data, tools, models, training, mentorship, infrastructure and support needed to identify and measure the potential future impacts of climate change and a transition to a low carbon world.

Introducing the Sustainable Africa Initiative (SAI), where our core objective is to equip Africa's agriculture sector with the tools, knowledge, and data necessary to develop and implement science-based strategies. Our focus is on mitigating and adapting to the physical and transition risks posed by climate change.

Through these strategies, we aim to enhance crop resilience, increase agricultural output, improve food security, and reduce the staggering number of individuals in Africa who currently suffer from persistent hunger, malnutrition, and starvation, which surpasses 230 million people. Achieving sustainable agriculture across Africa requires global cooperation and collaboration.

Led by the Climate Risk Research Foundation in partnership with the Tony Elumelu Foundation, the Sustainable Africa Initiative receives support from AWS and the Linux Foundation's OS-Climate, along with a diverse group of volunteers representing corporations, non-profit organizations, academic institutions, and countless others who are committed to making a positive impact in Africa.

If you share our vision and are willing to contribute, please don't hesitate to contact us HERE. Together, we can create a more resilient and sustainable future for Africa's agriculture sector and the millions of lives it impacts.
