- Published on

“The way Africa develops this century will make or break climate action,” Erik Solheim, executive director of UN Environment, said.
“Large parts of Africa are at a crossroads – to either follow the destructive path that many other nations have followed, or learn from the mistakes of others and leapfrog the rest of the world,” he told Landscape News.
