The Global Energy Alliance for People and Planet (GEAPP) supported President William Ruto’s call for the same to address pressing climate challenges in Africa and end energy poverty with green energy.
The GEAPP is an alliance of 20 partners founded at COP26 by the IKEA Foundation, The Rockefeller Foundation and the Bezos Earth Fund and is an official sponsor of the ACS.
