If Africa leads, others will follow
From a Climate Correspondent
I first met Mohamed Adow at the annual UN climate talks in Marrakech in 2016. COP22 (as it’s known) is probably best remembered for Donald Trump being elected smack bang in the middle of the conference. But many people worked tirelessly to ensure the conference didn’t get derailed.
Mohamed was a prominent voice who stuck to his aim — to ensure developing countries that have done the least to cause climate change but face the worst impacts didn’t get forgotten about on the international stage.
Now, as Founder and Director of Power Shift Africa, Mohamed was recently awarded the prestigious, multi-million dollar, Climate Breakthrough prize to continue his groundbreaking work. He agreed to tell me his story and outline his vision for the continent.
