Title: The Power of Health: Accel­er­at­ing the 2030 Sus­tain­able Devel­op­ment Goals

Sum­mary: Clean energy is under­go­ing a cost and per­for­mance rev­o­lu­tion, and health, social andgender-​​justice crises across Africa are explod­ing. With that back­ground, how do we rapidlyand with resilience accel­er­ate progress on the Sus­tain­able Devel­op­ment Goals? To explorethis ques­tion on basic the­o­ret­i­cal and very prac­ti­cal applied grounds, HETA, (Health­Elec­tri­fi­ca­tion and Telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions Alliance) has emerged as a new tool. This talk will­ex­plore the early evo­lu­tion and fram­ing ideal of this clean energy-​​health-​​gender nexus. Wewill also cover HETA+, the inte­gra­tion of indige­nous knowl­edge and tra­di­tional med­i­cine intothis via a large-​​scale ‘pilot’ learn­ing project that was advanced sig­nif­i­cantly last week at theAfrica Cli­mate Sum­mit in Nairobi, Kenya.
