The Deputy Minister in The Presidency, Kenny Morolong will deliver an opening address on the second day of the Inequality, Work and Nature Conference, jointly organised by The Presidency, The EU and the African Centre of Excellence for Inequality Research based at the University of Cape Town. This conference is part of a research partnership between the Agence Française de Développement (AFD) and the European Union through the Extension of the EU-AFD Research Facility on Inequalities(link is external) to study the interactions between inequality, environmental change, and sustainability.
This research is aimed at supporting governments in designing policy actions to meet these interdependent challenges. The Extension of the EU-AFD Research Facility on Inequalities has been focusing its work on four selected countries: Colombia, Indonesia, Mexico, and South Africa. The AFD – a key partner of ACEIR – African Centre of Excellence for Inequality Research works closely with the South African government and local research centres to provide relevant research insights on how to support the reduction of socio-economic inequalities while addressing the challenges of low-carbon transition.
