Nearly 200 nations approved a major UN climate change report detailing the accelerating impacts of global warming on Sunday, at the end of a sometimes fraught two-week meeting overshadowed by Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
The findings, published by the Nairobi-based think tank Power Shift Africa, focus on the costs of warding off climate impacts by strengthening transport infrastructure, shoring up communications, building flood defences and other preventative measures.
..."This report shows the deep injustice of the climate emergency," said Mohamed Adow, head of the Power Shift Africa.
"It is simply not acceptable for the costs to fall on those people who are suffering the most while contributing the least to climate change."
Adow said African nations needed a "massive" amount of help to withstand the onslaught of climate change.
