Did Africa's COP27 Live Up to Expectations?

It's fair to say that COP27 didn't live up to its billing. A lot of issues were swept under the carpet during my two weeks in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt. 

However, the voices of activists and environmentalists attending the annual Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change are getting louder and harder to ignore as they call for change. After intense negotiations, a historic deal on loss, and damage was a breakthrough but much remains to be done on implementing the fund, reports Melody Chironda for AllAfrica.
