Highlights for Africa from CoP 26 Climate Change Summit

Africa at the CoP 26 UN Climate Change Conference

As the CoP26 UN Climate change Conference proceeds in Scotland, over 25 African leaders have taken center stage to demand climate justice and greater support from richer nations.

They demanded wealthy countries make good on their pledge to deliver $100 billion a year in climate finance to developing countries – a commitment made at the UN climate talks in 2009.
