As the host for this year’s United Nations Climate Change Conference, the UK has taken the helm to guide conversations post-Covid-19 and ensure a sense of cohesion as climate concerns continue to grow.

The international conversation between the Global South and the North, at this year’s COP26, has been an ethical debate.

For Janet Rogan, COP26 regional ambassador for the Middle East and Africa, climate change does not discriminate. “It’s about looking at how do you ensure that developed countries really do reduce the emissions, which have been [having an] impact on […] climate. I do not think climate change cares who you are or where you are,” she tells The Africa Report.
