There is no issue more unjust than climate change. Those who have done the least to cause it are the ones suffering the most. My home continent, Africa, contributes just 3.8 per cent of global greenhouse gasses and yet we are hurt more by the consequent global warming than those countries that contribute the majority of emissions.

In the Horn of Africa drought has caused famine for millions of people. In Southern Africa floods and storms devastate lives, properties and livelihoods. Extreme weather across the continent is stalling progress towards food security, social well-being and economic development.
