1.2 billion DKK for South Africa


Why? To support their green transition in the energy sector from coal to solar and wind sources. Part of the money will be used to retrain the coal miners so that they can work in the solar and wind industries. But, really, why? To provide a new export market for the green technology developed by Danish companies. If you are interested, check out the Danish-South African Green Power Partnership. Is that it? No. Mette Frederiksen is touring Africa together with the Dutch prime minister, to reduce Russian influence in the area. 

  • South Africa has the largest energy consumption in Africa. The main energy source is coal. 
  • South Africa currently leads BRICS (an international club created by Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa). Almost half of the world’s population is represented in this club. 
  • This spring, South Africa held a naval military exercise with Russia and China. 
  • The USA suspects South Africa of supplying weapons to Russia. 
  • The European Union is trying to move South Africa away from Russia and closer to the western powers.
