Arrive in the office, review and respond to emails, update my calendar, send final reminders for the day’s activities, and compile notes on key issues that need to be discussed with my team for the day.
Chair the first meeting of the day with my team. Discuss our strategy to provide technical support in getting investment and implementing Nationally Determined Contributions (plans to reduce emissions/build resilience) in pilot countries across Africa.
If we share the lessons learned, it will catalyse the development of similar tools across the continent and beyond to unlock employment and wealth opportunities for young people!
Head to the café for breakfast. Ideally, herbal tea with egg and a local pastry called 'mandazi'.
Get back to the office and push email responses, undertake online and face-to-face meetings with colleagues, state actors, corporates and UN partners across Africa and globally. Work until 2pm before breaking for a light lunch.
