Kenya's president Uhuru Kenyatta is urging more international cooperation to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. At the Climate Summit 2014, the East African leader asked for bold actions from governments to provide affordable and sustainable energy. He said, "The challenge has moved on from whether renewable energy can power modern lifestyles at a reasonable cost - which we now know it can - to how best to finance and accelerate its deployment to increase the share of renewables in the energy mix."
Kenyatta also announced the launch of the Africa Clean Energy Corridor which covers 22 countries in East and southern Africa. He added, "The Africa Clean Energy Corridor is a decisive and focused action agenda to link markets and connect resources with demand, and to unlock massive economies of scale for the deployment of renewable energy." The president said that regional co-operation on renewable energy deployment would save 2,500 metric tons of cumulative carbon monoxide emissions by 2030, and double electricity supply.
