in between traffic in lagos and encouraging this to do the same. i'm christine want to welcome to news africa i'm glad you're choosing to heat strips so everyone knows what it's like and with the climate crisis gathering pace it's full cost to get even worse now who likes going to work when it's hot no one and that's likely to have productivity and new full cost by the international labor organization expects western africa to be $1.00 of the hardest hit areas our report shows about $80000000.00 job will be off in 2005 because of heat stress. we also found that. regions will be particularly affected and that soft asia and western are free. way. to present 5 percent.

ok so western africa's full cost to be hit disproportionately hadia it is timid suggests that africa accounts for just a tiny share of the gases that are driving the climate crisis africa produces less than 4 percent of the global output off greenhouse gases now how does that compare with feed largest emitters like china the united states and the european union while china emits 23 percent the u.s. 19 percent and the e.u. 13 percent of global emissions so you get the picture while those responsible for climate change are predominately in europe asia and the u.s. africans are taking the brunt and it's not just future growth rising temperatures and irregular rainfall are likely to agriculture the hardest making up to 60 percent of the lost jobs but some of the 21 year old sam did radio reports or are

8:34 pm
they can do about it. i knew. then she's talking about her visit to the coal market later she reminisces about her childhood telling a story about her neighbors for over water before the well would run dry due to persistent droughts. that medicine be and already affected by climate change but most are not our outfit. it's about creating or giving out information that is powerful information that is actually able to stimulate every person's mind to say look i have been affected by this situation by climate change and i think it's high time we get to do something about it that's my piece in climate change is deeply unjust although african countries account for the tiniest fraction of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere droughts floods and rising temperatures hit the continent with full force but fury is convinced that symbiont
8:35 pm
are not helpless and commit to get the effects. that starts with educating people most of the vendors called my kids have never heard of climate change but for many fear issues and i. told them to understand the change in weather patterns they have witnessed. saying i'm going to. be waiting for you 200-2016 some get erratic water supply due to reach out to lead to a no rainfall and also that was caused because many people were busy cutting down trees and this is what we're actually going to get to see more if no action is actually implemented by we the people feeding one since the people at the market to think about it political alternative such as charcoal made from banana peels or mayes. her commitment shows how young people across the globe are becoming
8:36 pm
increasingly aware that climate change may compromise their future and that action cannot hurt until to morrow. i'm now joined by landry into it say he's a climate change activist with the n.t.o. africa 350 they say their mission is climate justice welcome to africa landry you say that africa is paying the highest price for climate change why your big quantities. highest were raised in terms of well you know really noticing the continent so in terms of increase droughts and floods on this program were to want diseases and increase a lot of the increase of our temperatures our crews over much of the continent so those are some of the plot that shows that africa which is good to us would be nice a response capacity is paying the highest growth right at landry how do we incentivize our governments on the continent to ditch coal power plants for example
8:37 pm
and opt for more green solutions. so who are has been presented as the solution for africa the industry isn't but however i'll see that in the new area to get clinton doesn't need court all i got was if you are too weak it's full potential because you know at the one hand. you're not of course it was his cause the current climate crisis we are in on the other hand who are sources such as hydro power us we. are becoming more and more affordable and are cheaper underwriting it so there is obsessed lead no need for african government to not consider growing the core we because it's being phased out group money ok so let's talk about you bring out the global picture we're looking at the west today and they're almost you know under the pressure of having to cognize at a very rapid pace and then you have africa which actually has not even carbonized
8:38 pm
we're talking about you talked about the no emissions on the continent i just wondered whether or not that gives us bogen in power as africans. yeah it for some need does all government kind of gives these are by giving power inductor this is being used as an argument justified in the city are too important to persist score again how about say that we need to ask a question i too have been official that kind of options is it though of ordinary africans or is rather the companies and maybe some elites governmental officials who get profit out of sight deal so i think the option that the government across uppercut should consider are the ones that put forward people's interests and address not only the environmental crisis but also
8:39 pm
a social justice issues such as access to electricity for all endorse or job creation because we do revel in a g. regression happening globally it is rude to those kind of potential to address to kill in the. right does the slow to judge of the crisis but also to serve and their rated issues ok landry into it's a climate change activist with n.t.l. africa 350 thank you. ok nigeria's lagos is infamous for its traffic jams at peak time in the mornings and evenings they add to people's commutes some people say the solution is easy bicycles we meet on troponin is who are trying to revive cycling culture in lagos as a transport solution for commuters. will say see me ok me writes his bicycle to work the same time that would normally be wasted
8:40 pm
