Why Africa is particularly vulnerable to climate change

When it comes to climate change Africa is in the eye of the storm. This is partly because of human factors - but the continent's climate also makes it extremely vulnerable.

Africa is faced with a number of interlinked challenges. These include land degradation, poverty and climate change. These are referred to as "wicked problems" since they are complex and caused by a number of factors, many of which have global dimensions.
