MetadataShow full item record
The authors state that "Africa as a continent is the most vulnerable region to the impacts of climate change." The article reminds the audience that national responses to climate change are compromised not only by economic factors but also by geographical, social, and political characteristics of each region. Within these constrains one should target high-risk groups to ensure participation on both policymaking and implementations of new strategies. The authors also indicate that climate change agenda is set at the international level and often neglects gender, geographical differences, and differences in impacts to different groups.
