Q+A: Africa at critical climate action crossroads, UN Environment chief says

The movement to restore degraded land and meet targets under the Paris agreement on climate change continues to grow and African nations have a key role to play, the U.N. top environment official said on Thursday.

“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.
