“We are proud to share our commitment to a faster, more transparent, and efficient passport processing system. With re-investments and reforms in place, we’re reducing wait times and clearing the backlog”She added.

The summit brings together African high-level policymakers, senior officials, climate change experts, civil society organizations, and other stakeholders to deliberate on the sub-themes of the Summit.

“Africa has taken a position that it contributes the least to global warming but is the most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change and therefore has special needs and special circumstances warranting financial support to mitigate against and adapt to climate change,” the organizers stress.

The continent is seeking to accelerate the implementation of its climate change strategies and actions to avert the catastrophic impacts of global warming and build the resilience of the continent’s economies.

Climate change is a threat to Africa’s development. According to the 2022 Climate Vulnerability Index, nine of the 10 most vulnerable countries are in Sub-Saharan Africa and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s 2022 Climate Change Report confirms that West Africa, East Africa, and Central Africa are among global hotspots of human vulnerability to climate change.HAVE YOU SEEN THIS?
