As world leaders prepare to travel to Egypt for this year’s UN Conference on climate change, a climate youth activist in southwestern Uganda Daphine Kansiime has petitioned them to take practical steps to address the climate crisis.
Kansiime who has experienced the adverse effects of climate change in her life, talked to Water Journalists Africa’s Adella Mbabazi in the video below.
She says, “enough is enough; we have suffered enough. World leaders must walk the talk on Africa’s climate crisis.”
The 27th UN conference on change will be held in Egypt from 7 to 18 November 2022. Some African delegates have indicated that during this conference, their focus will be on adaptation, mitigation efforts, and delivery of finance to enhance implementation.
Delegates at the last year’s UN climate change conference in Scotland pledged up to $350m to fund the most affected countries to adapt to climate change. But not much of this has been paid, just like past climate commitments.
