Africa’s climate crisis will escalate, unless leaders and private sectors, commit to actions that ensure no new fossil fuel developments will take place on the continent.

Most African economies rely on agriculture and the region is already prone to serious droughts and floods that change the lives of many women, men and children across the continent.

Man made induced climate changes are escalating frequent and intense weather events.

With an escalating climate crisis and more devastating damages, it’s time for Africa to reject the current development model based on fossil fuels and rapidly transition towards a decentralised renewable energy system which can not only respond to the growing energy needs, but also integrate community resilience to climate change.
