Abstract: "Climate change, whatever its causes and precise timelines, rep-resents one of the most challenging threats to sustainable development for all those living in Africa. The continent is home to the most susceptible populations of the world, because of the sensitivity and fragility of its natural environment, and its high dependence on environment-based livelihoods, such as agriculture. Of all global regions, Africa is the least responsible for contributing to climate change; however, its populations are most at risk from its damaging consequences."
