AIX: Nairobi

Nairobi, Kenya, 12-13 March 2024

The third AIX: Nairobi brings together policy makers, financiers, developers, investors and a range of other stakeholders, to discuss ways to develop sustainable projects and define how climate finance commitments can be implemented to scale up the industry with the maximum impact for all stakeholders.

Held under the Chatham House Rule, the meeting provides a significant platform for governments, institutions and other stakeholder groups to hold free and frank discourse on major policy issues in Kenya and the wider region.
