African Civil Society Wants Action At COP25 Climate Change Summit

During the 25th round of climate change negotiations in Madrid, Spain, African civil society organisations will call on governments to play their promised roles in fighting climate change. The 25th UN Framework Convention on Climate Change Conference of Parties (COP25) comes a week after the organisation's Environment Programme warned that unless global greenhouse gas emissions fall by 7.6% each year between 2020 and 2030, the world will miss the opportunity to get on track towards the 1.5°C temperature goal of the Paris Agreement.
