#12 - Climate change & Africa: Lily Odarno, Clean Air Task Force

We are thrilled to have interviewed Lily Odarno, Clean Air Task Force's Director of Energy and Climate Innovation Program, Africa.

Lily shared some fascinating insights about the work of Clean Air Task Force, the specific work they are undertaking across Africa, the intersection of growth and climate mitigation, the need for localised clean energy solutions and much more. This was one of our favourite interviews recorded this year and is not to be missed.

Let us know what you learnt from this interview in the comments! (Also let us know what you think of the new introduction style, and whether we should keep it!)
