‘Cli­mate change loss is a dis­as­ter for Africa’

DNA (Daily News & Analysis) Mumbai Edition - - FRONT PAGE -

United Na­tions gen­eral sec­re­tary An­to­nio Guter­res has said the world is los­ing the race with cli­mate change and this can be a “dis­as­ter for Africa” and be­yond. Guter­res urged more po­lit­i­cal will for fi­nanc­ing and adap­ta­tion as he spoke ahead of a sum­mit of the African Union con­ti­nen­tal body. He said Africa will pay a “higher price” over cli­mate change be­cause of the dra­matic im­pacts, while the con­ti­nent “doesn’t con­trib­ute much” to global warm­ing. He also said he be­lieves Africa is be­com­ing an ex­am­ple where it is pos­si­ble to solve and pre­vent con­flicts.
