Climate Change

Globally, Africa is seen as a continent particularly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. The anticipated detrimental impacts associated with the environmental challenge of climate change will ultimately modify Africa’s economies and livelihoods, health, social structure, infrastructure and natural systems. To date little has been done to empower, capacitate and mobilise youth, particularly in Africa to address global environmental challenges such as climate change.

To remedy this, YVE Ghana has been leading the youth front in engaging the youth, stakeholders and civil society organisations in climate change advocacy, capaccity building and dialogue.
