Abou Bamba discusses the impact of deforestation and tackling climate change issues in Côte d’Ivoire

Abou Bamba, Chair of the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) COP15 Organizing Committee, joins The African Climate Conversation to share his thoughts on the impact that climate change is having on the continent.

He also provides his unique insight into:

• The links between land degradation, deforestation and climate change in Côte d’Ivoire and what can be done to address these specific challenges.

• The immediate initiatives that are being taken through the Abidjan Legacy Programme (a five-year programme designed by the Ivorian authorities to deal with desertification and its consequences) and how other countries are participating in this programme.
