ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia (AP) – The United Nations leader says the world is losing the climate change climax and "this can be a disaster for Africa" and wider.
Antonio Guterres called for greater political will to finance and adapt when he spoke on Saturday before the summit of the continental body of the African Union.
He said Africa would pay a "higher price" over climate change due to dramatic influences, while the continent "does not contribute much" to global warming. Higher temperatures will increase in Africa.
Head of U.N. also reports to reporters that after recent shifts to peace in Southern Sudan and between Ethiopia and Eritrea, "I believe that Africa is becoming an example where conflicts can be resolved and avoided."
He hopes that the spirit can spread to the rest of the world.
