Industrial Policy in a Decarbonizing Global Economy: Pathways for Africa and Latin America

Past Event

February 3, 2022

10:00 am - 11:30 am

Despite the developmental gains of recent decades, the end of the commodity boom, the recent Covid-19 pandemic, and growing calls for decarbonization have raised numerous questions on the future of development strategies in Africa and Latin America. This panel will provide an overview of the challenges and opportunities offered by a decarbonizing global economy to fiscally-constrained African and Latin American states, and discuss the role of industrial policy in driving economic diversification.

This event is the second in a series of dialogues, convened by the Center on Global Energy Policy at Columbia University SIPA and the Oxford University China-Africa Network, that focuses on China’s role in the political economies of African and Latin American states. The dialogues bring together scholars, policymakers and civil society voices from across the world to reflect on how growing indebtedness, (potential) energy transitions and industrial policy are linked, and what role China plays in impacting these connections.
