Can Africa avoid climate catastrophe?

Season 2, Episode 26

Duration: 26m

Environmentalist Achim Steiner, administrator of the UN Development Programme (UNDP), says that the latest IPCC report – which details the disastrous unfolding climate consequences for Africa and other regions – is an urgent wake-up call for global policymakers.

He talks to African Business about the report, the Cop negotiations process, the pandemic’s impact on climate policy, and the potential economic fallout for Africa of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
