Promoting a JUST transition to GREEN hydrogen in AFRICA (JUST-GREEN AFRH2ICA). A mutual benefit collaborative green hydrogen roadmap between the European and African Unions

JUST-GREEN AFRH2ICA aims to develop a green hydrogen just transition roadmap based on the analysis of different African Union green hydrogen scenarios analysed at socio-economic-technical level as well as inspired by European Union Hydrogen and Just Transition Programmes. This will allow promoting a mutual benefit collaboration of the two continents towards the development of independent and collaborative hydrogen economies, and research and development ecosystem and value chains.
