Was Warsaw enough to address climate challenges in Africa?

Source(s):  Al Jazeera Satellite Network

"Unless the UNFCCC negotiations achieve deep emission reductions in the short term, the continent's adaptation needs will rapidly expand. Africa needs to step up its adaptation efforts, as fast as possible. For this to be possible, financial support, technology and capacity-building are essential. Africa is committed to making the most of its own resources, including human resources, knowledge and experience, to meet the growing adaptation challenge. However, to succeed it will need the international community's support - and it is time to step up that support to meet the growing adaptation challenge," writes Richard Munang and Joy Hyvarinen in their opinion piece on the pages of Aljazeera.
