‘Climate change loss is a disaster for Africa’
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.
