Implications for Africa

Africa, more than any other region in the word, will be without a doubt, the most harshly affected by the negative effects of climate change. As a result, the stakes are high in the struggle to preserve the continent's climate. The number of challenges faced by the continent - a population boom estimated to reach 9 billion in 2050, runaway urbanization, food insecurity, unemployment, etc. - in spite of the evident economic growth observed over the past 15 years, however, add to the severity of the situation.

"Africa is our workplace and our home... It's the millions of lives and livelihoods at stake."

Solomon Asamoah, AfDB Vice-President
