CT002 – The Politics of Climate Financing
The impact of Climate Change is felt today, more than it was ten years ago and we must act strategically. On every episode of Climate Talk podcast, I engage with environmentalists, thought leaders, policy makers, and professionals from all walks of life and together we discuss around the subject of Climate Change, Climate Action, Climate Finance, among other related themes.
My guest on this episode is Dr. Richard Munang, an exceptional bright African mind, a Climate Change expert and the author of the book, Making Africa Work Through The Power of Innovative Volunteerism. He currently works with the United Nations Environment as the African Regional Coordinator of Climate Change and leads the Ecosystem-Based Adaptation for Food Security project across 40 African Countries.
In this episode, Dr. Richard shares with us:
- The opportunities in Climate Change and how Africa can seize these opportunities.
- What are the politics of climate financing in Africa?
- How the implementation of Climate Change policies can be driven by the youths?
- Some innovative ideas that Africans in Africa are championing to drive Climate Action.
- Alternative sources of financing and adapting to Climate Change.
