COP22: A Defining Moment for Africa’s Climate Movement


COP22: A Defining Moment for Africa’s Climate Movement

Lerato Letebele

Africa’s climate struggles are set to take centre stage at this year’s annual UNFCCC Conference of the Parties meeting from 7-18th November. Host country Morocco will see its city, Marrakesh, come to life as politicians, civil society and climate activists from all over the globe, convene to discuss climate change and its implications for developing countries. The meeting provides a critical space to engage in dialogues about tackling climate impacts while encouraging sustainable development growth alongside widespread community resilience.


It is quite telling that this article has been up for quite sometime but no-body has commented, although usually the environment gets a fair amount of interest and attention on this website.

Would it be ungenerous of me to think, perhaps, that, Africa and its specific problems are not particularly high on the priority for folk on CommonDreams?
