Nigeria's President Muhammadu Buhari has called for urgent action to tackle effect of climate change in Africa.

Minister of Environment, Mohammed Abdullahi, represented the president at the 2022 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP27) in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt.

He said the world is in a critical time and the action today will determine the fate of the future generations.

“This year, we’ve witnessed disastrous extreme weather events from terrifying wildfires in the United States, to unprecedented heat waves in India, Pakistan, and Europe, to intense floods in my country, Nigeria.

“For developing nations particularly in Africa who, despite contributing the least to both historical and current emissions, are facing climate impacts to a disproportionate degree, the case for accelerated climate action is even more pressing.

“We need to see urgent and decisive climate action from the countries most responsible for the emissions that cause climate change," he said.
