Chukwuemeka Emenekwe, Uchenna Nnamani, Ayodeji Stephen (2024). Green Industrialization in Africa: Opportunities and Tensions in Africa-Europe Relations. Scoping paper on Nigeria, Ukȧmȧ.

This paper belongs to a series dedicated to green industrialization in Africa produced within the framework of the Ukȧmȧ Platform. Other reports include the other two country case studies (Kenya and Namibia), a Policy Brief, and a Synthesis Paper.


In this report, we explore the context of industrialization in Nigeria and uncover critical insights into the nation’s industrial sector’s composition and the shift from a reliance on crude oil and natural gas to more diverse activities. Manufacturing, exhibiting resilience, has remained a stable contributor. The report underscores the urgent need for re-industrialization as Nigeria navigates its path toward green economic transformation. By addressing the complexities and potential of green industrialization, this report aims to shed light on the opportunities and tensions in Africa-Europe relations, offering a comprehensive understanding of Nigeria’s journey towards a sustainable and prosperous future.
