        I fail to understand if some nations do understand the effects of climate change.

          Uganda's pursuit of Chinese funding for the EACOP pipeline project, following the withdrawal of some Western partners, raises concerns regarding the commitment to combat climate change. It is important to ensure that any infrastructure projects align with sustainable development goals and do not contribute to further greenhouse gas emissions. Governments should prioritize investments in renewable energy and explore environmentally friendly alternatives to fossil fuel infrastructure. Collaboration and international cooperation are crucial in addressing climate change effectively.

                Sometimes one is left wondering if climate change effects don't affect some nations.

                  @tabitha_kimani and the fact is that they are all affected only that maybe their pride can't allow them to admit and take action
