In search of common ground on climate diplomacy - Part lI
In recent years, policymakers in Europe and Africa have been giving more attention to the climate crisis. However, addressing it can not be an isolated action. Its impact on all aspects of human life means countries cannot take action alone, having instead to prioritise coordination with other countries and regions. This 2-part podcast series zooms in on EU-Africa climate diplomacy and how the EU and Africa can overcome diplomatic tensions in the realm of climate and energy.
This limited series is part of the Africa-EU cooperation on climate and green transition project.
In the second part of this series, Hanne Knaepen talks to Tracy Kajumba - Principal Researcher and team leader, strengthening local to global partnerships, in the climate change group of the IIED.
Hanne sat down with Ms Kajumba to discuss the status of Africa-Europe climate diplomatic relations, Africa's climate financing gaps, the importance of equity in partnerships and whether the principle of climate justice is fading away from the spotlight.
