Namibia: Prioritise Measures to Address Climate Change
September 4, 2015
An international organisation pushing for global action on climate change says African leaders need to urgently prioritise addressing climate change if they are to avoid adverse weather conditions that bring drought and floods.
"Keep at least 80 percent of fossil fuels in the ground, and finance a just transition to 100 percent renewable energy by 2050. Anything less will put too many of the communities that did the least to cause the climate crisis at risk of floods, super storms or other climate disasters," said the 350Africa.org, a non-government organisation devoted to raise awareness and push for global action on climate change.
World leaders are heading to Paris, France, for discussions on climate change.
