Real solutions to climate change in Africa are about people, not profit

Alternating droughts and floods have withered or flushed away crops and decimated livestock. Hunger is sweeping across the continent. In East Africa alone, Oxfam calculated last year that 13 million animals, worth $7.4bn, and hundreds of thousands of hectares of crops were lost, leaving millions of people without income or food. Our water engineers warned that one in five water boreholes they dig now in East Africa is dry or has water unfit for people to drink without treatment. Too often, they must drill deeper, more expensive, and harder-to-maintain boreholes only to find dry, depleted, or polluted reservoirs.https://www.aljazeera.com/opinions/2024/2/28/real-solutions-to-climate-change-in-africa-are-about-people-not-profit

      I strongly agree. The impact of climate change in Africa is devastating, with widespread loss of crops, livestock, and access to clean water. It is crucial to prioritize solutions that focus on the well-being of people rather than financial gain.
