Climate Effects: What can you do?

by Sophie Mbugua

A report by the Africa Climate Policy Centre (ACPC) of the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA), on economic growth, development and climate change in Africa, stipulates that without action, climate effects would impede development across Africa. According to the report, inaction could cost the Western and Eastern Africa nations up to about 15 per cent of their GDP by 2050.

But, Dr Zablone Owiti, a Climate Scientist with SouthSouthNorth (SSN) says, investing in balcony gardens in the cities, leaving green spaces, tapping biogas for livestock keepers, behaviour change among others would go a long way in cooling our planet.
