African countries have more demands, less expectations from the United Nations Climate Conference! 11 crore population in crisis

Windhoek : Young climate activists from African countries have high demands but low hopes for the UN climate summit beginning Sunday at Egypt’s coastal Sharm el-Sheikh resort. Conference of Parties (COP27) observers and organizers of the summit have promoted the summit as the ‘African COP’ where African countries’ positions on issues such as funding or moving to renewable energy sources to combat climate change are discussed. will be an important centre.

“For COP27 to be the ‘African COP’, the needs and priorities of African people need to be reflected in the outcome of the negotiations,” said Elizabeth Wathuti, climate activist from Kenya. COP27 is an opportunity to bring justice to the most affected countries through global solidarity and cooperation. Analysts expect climate talks to discuss whether vulnerable countries should be compensated for climate-related damages.

End dependence on developed countries
Some young activists, like Wathuti, say the African continent should expect rich countries to drastically cut emissions and compensate for the damage caused by climate-related destruction. Africa accounts for only three to four percent of global emissions, despite having 17 percent of the world’s population. At the same time, other activists say that African countries themselves need to do something because developed countries have failed to keep their promises. Comoros Islands activist Hunaidt Abdurrahman said Africa needs to stop relying on developed countries for funding.

Vathuthi said the talks should be about “accountability” and hoped that the conference would also discuss the “promises made but not fulfilled”. Ugandan activist Vanessa Nkate agreed that funding from developed countries is important for the African continent to achieve its goals. The United Nations weather agency said 116 million people living in coastal states and islands in Africa are at risk of rising sea levels, and by 2050, African countries are projected to spend $50 billion annually on climate-related impacts.
