Africa is particularly exposed to the impact of global warming.
Average temperatures in Africa have already risen by 1.4 degrees centigrade since the pre-industrial period, as compared to + 1.1 °C on a worldwide scale. Africa is therefore warming faster than the global average.
This increase may still seem small, but it’s already generating real consequences: from a rise in extreme temperatures and more severe weather events to decreased rainfall, increased tree loss and a slowdown in economic growth.
