Urgent climate action needed for Africa and the world

October, 2022

The Lancet publishes the 2022 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change

“Wealthy nations must step up support for Africa and vulnerable countries in addressing past, present, and future impacts of climate change.”

“Africa has suffered disproportionately from the climate crisis, although it has done little to cause the crisis.”

“Climate change-related risks in Africa include flooding, drought, heatwaves, reduced food production, and reduced labour productivity.”

“Droughts in sub-Saharan Africa have tripled between 1970–79 and 2010–19.”

This year COP27 (Conference of the Parties (COP) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change) will be held on 6-18 November 2022 in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt.

Increasingly Anglican Overseas Aid’s (AOA) partners are feeling the dramatic impact of Climate Change.

Currently, we are working on how to support the significant drought that is having a devastating impact on the communities within the Imarisha Maisha program in Kenya.
