The debate about whether countries need to focus on phasing down and reducing emissions from all fossil fuels as opposed to the focus on coal is sure to be a tense point of negotiation as COP27 nears its end.

There is a cleaner, greener, renewable future that is possible, and we cannot deny Africa its right to that better future.
