Somaliland Minister of Environment Shukri Haji Bandare highlighted during the energy transition panel discussion at COP28. Somaliland is vulnerable to climate change impacts, including droughts, desertification, and water scarcity.

Increasing access to renewable energy can contribute to climate change mitigation by reducing greenhouse gas emissions and decreasing reliance on fossil fuels. Plus, investments in renewable energy projects can attract foreign direct investment, stimulate local industries, and create a favorable business environment.
