On the occasion of the United Nations Climate Change Conference – COP24, which will be held in Katowice, Poland, from 2 to 14 December 2018, the African Union Commission (AUC) is delighted to inform all the GRMF stakeholders that it will host a side event on GRMF at COP24. This event will be held on 6 December 2018 from 1:15 to 2:45 PM in Room 2.

The side event will consist of a presentation on GRMF: Summary of the Achievements and Status of GRMF to date, which will be followed by a high level panel discussion on Geothermal Energy Development in East Africa, one of most important Renewable Energy resources in the region. The Discussion will focus on the success achieved and the challenges facing the implementation and opportunities foreseen for the Geothermal Risk Mitigation Facility (GRMF), which is a facility for supporting public and private sector investment in geothermal development by mitigating early stage risks.

We would like to seize this opportunity to invite all GRMF stakeholders: developers, beneficiary countries, and all partners who will be attending COP24 or will be in Poland at this date to join our common event.

Thank you,

Your GRMF Team
