WorldGBC is excited to announce the appointment of our first full-time Regional Head for the Africa Regional Network – Jane Afrane.

Jane joins WorldGBC from the East Africa Advisor for the Commonwealth Local Government Forum. She has vast experience in the international development sector managing multi-lateral projects in West Africa and East Africa, driving the localisation of the Sustainable Development Goals and empowering local government as a key development partner. She also previously worked at UN-Habitat, providing technical support to urban governance programming and decentralisation processes.

Jane will be leading WorldGBC’s Africa Regional Network of Green Building Councils in eight countries, providing capacity building support. She will lead in the development of strategic local, regional and global partnerships. Additionally, she will focus on the creation, establishment and advancement of further Green Building Councils across the Africa region. Jane will also spearhead project development and advocacy initiatives to raise and promote awareness of green building across the continent.

Dominika Czerwinska, Director of Membership and Regional Networks at WorldGBC, said: “I’d like to welcome Jane as the first Regional Head for the Africa Network, a position which will add strength to the region by supporting the development of existing Green Building Councils, creating new Councils, and establishing projects and influential partnerships. 

“We have no doubt that our Africa Regional Network will become our fastest growing network over the coming years, and Jane will play a vital role in shaping this growth.”
