Africa's dash for gas heats up COP27

Category : Power Shift in the News | tags: The Star

Africa's natural resources are at the heart of a heated debate about how to balance economic growth and tackle global warming.

... This is why campaigners like Mohamed Adow from Power Shift Africa do not want to see new gas fields opened up in Africa. He blames a "powerful cabal of fossil fuel companies" along with "African elites" for the push to exploit gas.

"This would clearly be a disaster for the planet, but also for Africans, who make up some of the most acutely impacted victims of climate change."

Negotiators for some African governments say they are very much aware of the needs of their people.
