Episode 46

Climate change is already hitting Africa hard – from extreme weather events, to locust plagues, and failed harvests. But, international research and policy bodies, and ‘hot lists’ of influential climate scientists, rarely include African scientists.

We find out which climate scientists and activists the world should be watching, and why climate adaptation and mitigation depends on African science.
