Just Us and The Climate – Climate Justice Coalition, #012 South Africa’s R130 Billion Climate Finance Deal

Can climate finance unlock South Africa’s just energy transition? In my first foray into podcasting, I am part of a conversation with Nina Callaghan (Centre for Sustainability Transitions) and Alex Lenferna from 350Africa.org. We dive into the details (or lack thereof) surrounding South Africa’s major R130 billion climate finance deal announced at the COP 26 UN Climate Summit in Glasgow. We talk about questions like: what role does trust play in a just transition? Does climate finance come with strings attached? What do we make of fossil-fuel-friendly politicians who are resisting the finance deal on supposedly anti-imperialist grounds? Can this climate finance deal be the spark that ignites transformative change for South Africa that tackles social, ecological and economic justice at once? 23 Nov 2021 · 57 minutes
