COP26 is set to shed light on serious climate issues and provide an opportunity to support national governments in meeting their NDCs as well as engage with key stakeholders. With Africa being a historically low carbon emitter and yet labelled as an “impending climate crisis” with severe effects of climate change already evident across various countries, there is a lot at stake for the continent and hence the need to fully dissect and analyse the COP talks on a multifaceted level.
Join us in breaking down and discussing this year’s COP talks and what it means for Africa.
In our Africa community hangout, we will examine;
– What happened at COP26?
– What do we need to know as climate journalists?
– How will Africa be impacted?
– Where do we go from here?
Date: Thursday 25th November, 2021
Time: 3pm (GMT+3)
MEET OUR SPEAKERS
Senami is a Nigerian journalist who has reported in conflict zones across the country. She is also Climate Tracker’s Africa manager, and supported many of Climate Tracker’s online fellows throughout COP26.
Ferrial is an energy and climate change campaigner, focusing on nuclear energy. For her, working for Greenpeace Africa has made real the fact that you don’t have to be huge and powerful to challenge the polluting corporations and governments and that sometimes the more significant change can come from the less powerful.
