African Leaders Slam European Climate Conference No-show

The absence of European leaders from an Africa-led initiative to raise $25bn in climate finance leaves a “bitter taste in our mouths”, says Senegalese President Macky Sall.

The African Development Bank (AfDB) has already made $12.5bn available for AAAP but commitments from richer nations have been lagging.

A summit is seen as a key stepping stone on the road to Cop27 in Sharm El-Sheikh in November. Africa’s presidents made the point that Africa contributes less than 3% to carbon emissions but it is the most exposed to the devastating effects of climate change.

Senegal’s Macky Sall reminded delegates that Western nations largely developed on the back of fossil fuels and therefore it should rightly contribute to climate adaptation finance.
