Nigeria-africa Natural Resource & Energy Summit

Sustainable development of Africa’s natural resources through knowledge sharing, investment, and trade.


The Nigeria-Africa Natural Resource & Energy Summit is a development platform initiated by the Nigerian Government. Leveraging on its over half a century years’ experience within the natural resource and energy sectors, Nigeria seeks to work with fellow African Nations to continue the sustainable development of Africa’s natural resources through knowledge sharing, investment, and trade.

With the world focused on phasing out the usage of fossil fuels, reducing carbon emissions to protect the world from a Climate Change catastrophe, this forum has been convened to encourage the development and financing of sustainable and green natural resource and energy projects in Africa.

The summit focuses on the development and financing of renewable energy projects in Africa. We will be exploring natural gas projects, which emit significantly lower carbon emissions that may power industries in Africa, and green metal mining projects that produce raw materials to power a greener world.

A Platform for all

This platform operates as a multi-stakeholder, multi-disciplinary platform, dedicated to marketing bankable projects within the African Natural Resource and Energy Sector. It will serve as a summit to raise capital for such projects, sharing knowledge, and developing policy to accelerate the development of the energy resources of every African Nation sustainably.

Every edition of the Nigeria-Africa Natural Resource and Energy Investment Summit is targeted at addressing the fundamental challenges African nations are being confronted within the Natural Resource and Energy Sectors. Attendees and speakers will discuss investment trends and strategies that may be used to maximize the potential and accelerate the economic diversification of African nations.

Towards a greener Africa

This years summit, titled ‘Towards a greener Africa’, sees the summit focus on developing green projects in Africa following the need to protect the planet from climate change. As the world moves towards a green economic recovery post-covid-19, this edition seeks to ensure that Africa is taking steps to utilize new technology to cut carbon emissions within the sector. Additionally, topics will cover the development of the African Natural resources sector to take advantage of the fast-developing green metals international market, thus attracting investment for its continued development.
