Looking for a new think tank providing cutting edge analysis & solution ?

Who We Are

“Africa is most affected and yet least responsible for climate change. Sadly, it’s also the least informed about the crisis despite our people experiencing its devastating impacts the most.” 

Power Shift Africa (PSA) is a new think tank providing cutting edge analysis, solution focused policy and up to the minute media engagement from an African perspective, both within the continent and internationally. 

PSA’s mission is to mobilise climate action in Africa, amplify African voices through increased efforts on media and public communications, and leverage this voice internationally. 

As part of our energy work, PSA is serving a dedicated group of African civil society organisations to engage with the Africa Renewable Energy Initiative (AREI) to ensure it delivers on its goals of universal energy access and a transition to renewable energy.
