For Africans, the reality of the climate crisis is never far away. Millions of East Scientists have issued a “final warning” on the climate crisis, citing rising greenhouse gas emissions that are pushing the world towards irreversible damage and urging swift action to avert the crisis.
Mohamed Adow, the Director of Power Shift Africa, highlighted the urgent need for action, especially in Africa, which is on the frontline of the climate crisis.
He emphasized the need for the world to harness affordable clean energy and the technology to decarbonize the energy system, saying “This announcement from the IPCC is important for the whole world but nowhere is it more important than for Africa, which is on the frontline of the climate crisis. It is a wake-up call for Africa and the world."
