CLIMATE CHANGE IS DISPROPORTIONATELY IMPACTING THE WORLD’S MOST VULNERABLE
This is as true for Africa’s rural populations as it is for its most endangered species and their shrinking habitats
According to the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, Africa is expected to warm at 1.5x the rate of the global average leading to increasingly severe droughts, floods and storms; threatening people’s livelihoods, their health and exacerbating the pressures on Africa’s biodiversity.
Nature itself provides an incredible opportunity to address these challenges and Africa can show the way towards a more sustainable and environmentally conscious energy transition.
Recognising this potential, POWERING AFRICA | RECHARGING CONSERVATION is creating paths to Energy Access in rural communities that improve quality of life, promote climate resilient development and strengthen community ties to protected areas.
