As I have publicly stated and often reiterated, Africa can’t and must not pay for the sins of others. Africa, the least emitter, continues to suffer the worst of the impacts of climate change and must be abundantly supported to adapt to a reality it did not cause.
At The Tony Elumelu Foundation, we empower young entrepreneurs across all 54 African countries, including thousands of young farmers who we support to build resilience and adapt to climate change. But we can collectively do more for our youth who are the most vulnerable to this crisis. I urge all our global development partners, policymakers and governments to prioritise these young ones and I commend my friend Dr. Akinwumi Adesina for co-championing this movement.
