Alternative Frameworks for Biden-Harris Africa & Climate Policies
Two issues of the Washington, DC-based AfricaFocus Bulletin present several views on why the incoming administration should adopt policies on Africa and the climate crises that differ from past approaches.
In the first article, Imani Countess and William Minter argue that "a fundamental questioning of U.S. Africa-related policy is needed." Another piece by Elizabeth Shackleford examines failures of current U.S. policy on Ethiopia.
On climate, Justin Guay suggests that financial institutions will play a key role, with Janet Yellen at the Treasury Department a major player. Brandon Wu of Action Aid focuses on the priorities for international negotiations by the incoming Biden administration.
