Yasmine Fouad: Africa will be the continent most affected by climate change.

Egypt | Posted on 2021-12-25 19:28

Africa's CO² emissions do not exceed four percent of total global emissions, but the continent will be among the most affected by climate change, Egyptian Environment Minister Yasmine Fouad recently said.

The minister made the remarks during a plenary session in the Egyptian parliament on Monday, responding to a request from a number of its members to clarify government policy on measures taken to address the phenomenon of climate change, have Egyptian media reported.

According to Egypt Today.com, Fouad stressed the importance of establishing the African Center for Resilience and Adaptation in Cairo to adapt to climate change and which should come to the aid of African countries.

Fouad said the “hard work” done during COP26 “deserves to be recognized” and that this North African country “will carry the torch” and build on its success when Egypt hosts COP27 l next year, in 2022, international media reported.

According to the Guardian.com, Egypt has high hopes that the decision will be confirmed that COP 27 goes well in Africa and more specifically in the country. However, it should be noted that the choice of Egypt raises concerns.

Since coming to power in a military coup in 2013, Egyptian President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi has overseen the broadest and deepest crackdown on civil rights in modern Egyptian history, writes the Guardian.

Climate change in Africa remains a major threat to the continent. The World Meteorological Organization says Africa will witness increasing weather and climate variability that will lead to an increase in natural disasters and disruption of economic, ecological and social systems.

In addition, for African countries, more than two degrees Celsius of warming means a loss of GDP of about five percent per year by 2030, according to an analysis by the African Center for Climate Policy.
