Kenyan climate policy expert Mohamed Adow wins global award

Citizen Digital

A renowned Kenyan climate policy expert has bagged a prestigious award in recognition of his work addressing climate change.

Mohamed Adow, the Director and Founder of think tank Power Shift Africa in Nairobi, is one of this year’s two awardees of the Climate Breakthrough Award.

The award is given to extraordinary strategists to afford them the time, space, and resources to develop and implement bold new strategies to confront and mitigate the growing climate crisis.

“I will use this award to help build a platform that brings together leading political and economic voices from the continent, along with experts and grassroots organisers, to ensure Africa fulfils its true potential as a progressive force for climate action. With Africa hosting the UN climate negotiations in 2022, there has never been a more crucial time to put the African voice at the heart of the global climate conversation”, said Mr. Adow.

“The Climate Breakthrough Project finds exceptional leaders capable of pursuing strategies that would affect entire industries or countries and materially change the lives of millions of people”, said Climate Breakthrough Project Executive Director Savanna Ferguson.
