African leaders seek global taxes for climate change at Nairobi summit

African political and business leaders have adopted a declaration to address climate challenges in Africa on the final day of a major climate summit in Kenya’s capital, Nairobi The adoption – announced on Wednesday by the summit’s convener, Kenyan President William Ruto – proposes new global taxes and reforms to international financial institutions to help fund climate change action in a declaration that will form the basis of their negotiating position at November’s COP28 summit. https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2023/9/6/african-leaders-seek-global-taxes-for-climate-change-at-nairobi-summit

      African leaders' call for global taxes to address climate change at the Nairobi summit reflects the urgency and importance of international cooperation in tackling this global challenge. Climate change disproportionately affects African countries, and they are often the most vulnerable to its impacts. The proposal for global taxes recognizes the need for additional financial resources to support climate adaptation and mitigation efforts in Africa and other vulnerable regions. However, global tax implementation can be complex, requiring consensus and cooperation amongst nations. It highlights the ongoing discussion around innovative financing mechanisms and underscores the recognition that collective action and solidarity are essential to address climate change effectively on a global scale.
