Report: Climate threat brewing for tea crop

The Standard

A new report from the charity Christian Aid shows that Kenya, the world’s largest exporter of black tea, is facing a host of climate-related impacts such as rising temperatures, erratic rainfall, droughts, and new insect infestations.

African climate change expert Mohamed Adow, Director of Power Shift Africa, a Nairobi-based climate and energy think tank, said: “This year, as hosts of the G7 and COP26, the UK has a big role to play in tackling it.

Boris Johnson talks a lot about ‘Global Britain’ and this is his chance to actually back it up with action. The whole world will be watching, especially Kenyan tea farmers and other people on the front lines of the climate crisis.”
