This policy paper is a follow-up to the Africa Progress Panel’s annual flagship report Power, People, Planet: Seizing Africa’s Energy and Climate Opportunities, published in June 2015. The 2015 report explored the links between energy, climate and development in Africa. It documented the risks that would come with a business-as-usual approach and highlighted the opportunities for African leaders. As a global community, the report stated, we have thetechnology, finance and ingenuity to make the transition to a low-carbon, renewable energy future, but so far we  have lacked the political leadership and practical policies needed to break the link between energy and emissions. The report concluded that Africa is well placed to be part of that leadership.
