A study published by international development charity, Christian Aid, highlighted the devastating economic impact climate change will inflict on Commonwealth countries.
Ahead of the coronation of long-time environment campaigner King Charles III, the new report laid out the grim economic future facing Commonwealth countries and underlining the deep climate inequality within the bloc.
...Mohamed Adow, Director of climate and energy think tank, Power Shift Africa, said: “The Commonwealth has great potential to be a force for good on climate change. It contains both some of the most impacted nations and also some of the most responsible. If the historic polluters really care about the Commonwealth ‘family’ they need to slash their emissions and increase the financial support to help those on the front line of the crisis."
