Ruto calls for collective efforts on Climate Change

President William Ruto has said it is time for Africa to collectively tackle climate change since effective action will only be felt when the efforts of individual nations are converted to a collective endeavor.

Speaking on Friday in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia at the second conference of the Heads of State and Government of the Climate Change Commission for the Sahel Region, Ruto said the continent must speak with one voice and champion the aspirations of its people.

“We must defend our people against injustice that motivates the plunder of Africa’s natural resources,” he explained.” said the President and noted that for Africa, mitigating the climate change, is a matter of human safety and security.

Ruto called for a “more just financial system” that will bring together climate action and development finance to Africa and said such a system will sustainably generate jobs, lead to sustainable post-disaster recovery and improved risk-sharing.
