Introducing Electric Vehicles to Southern Africa: A Systemic Innovation Approach Towards a Green New Deal

Electric Vehicles (EVs) are not typically seen as catalysts that may enable the large-scale transformation of national and regional economic and development trajectories. But the climate emergency, the Fourth Industrial Revolution’s disruptive impac…

SADC Automobile Futures: Towards Just e-Mobility Transitions

This policy insight reviews the pathways toward enabling just e-mobility transitions in SADC member states. The future of e-mobility in SADC depends on the prioritisation of e-mobility to the poor and vulnerable, while embracing and adapting to the …

SADC Futures of Mining: Implications of Large-Scale EV Adoption

The large-scale adoption of electrical vehicles (EVs) is both an opportunity and threat if SADC member states do not act proactively to adjust to the future of mining. Southern Africa has some of the largest reserves of EV-related minerals and metal…

SADC e-Mobility Outlook: Accelerating the Battery Manufacturing Value Chain

The predicted uptake of electric vehicles (EVs) around the world will continue to increase the demand for lithium-ion batteries. At the same time, the electrification of transport is estimated to create 10 million jobs worldwide. The SADC region is …

SADC e-Mobility Scenarios: Pathways beyond the ICE age

This report is the result of a diverse range of stakeholders’ using ‘futures thinking’ tools and methods to examine the complexities of introducing electric vehicles (EVs) to Southern Africa and the tensions that might arise in creating more desired…

SADC e-Mobility Outlook: Accelerating Low Carbon Transport Futures

The Southern African Development Community (SADC) is host to countries with stark disparities in development ranging from least developing such as Malawi to middle income such as South Africa. The regional development agenda is therefore highly coun…

SADC Futures of e-Mobility: EVs as Enablers of a New Energy Paradigm

The global energy landscape has changed dramatically over the past 25 years, but there are potentially much larger and rapid changes in store in the future. Resources for the Future recently released a game-changing report1 that compares “apples-wit…

SADC e-Mobility Outlook: A Zimbabwean Case Study

The current landscape in the Zimbabwean transport sector is characterised by high operating costs which in turn increases production costs for industry and commerce, thereby negatively affecting the competitiveness of Zimbabwean-made products in the…

Copper is King - Zambia Stands to Win

The copper price is booming. Experts are divided over whether this boom is structural rather than cyclical. It is our considered view, in light of the current evidence, that copper prices will continue to climb due to medium to long-term supply defi…

The Potential of Electric Vehicles to Contribute to South Africa’s Greenhouse Gas Emissions Targets and other Developmental Objectives How Appropriate is the Investment in Electric Vehicles as a NAMA?

"Transport consumes 28% of final energy in South Africa, 97% of which is in liquid fuels, and subsequently contributes 13.1% of South Africa’s greenhouse gas(GHG)emissions. The sector is vital for economic development. As the demand for transport s…

Internalising Mitigation Activities into the Development Priorities and Approaches of Developing Countries Proceedings of the Forum on Development and Mitigation

This paper comprises several documents which was compiled for the Development and Mitigation Forum. A review of sustainable development assessment literature that could be applied to NAMAs discusses the theoretical considerations on sustainability …
