A recent report has shown that in addition to conflict, climate change is contributing to food insecurity across some parts of the continent: ''224 million people are now reportedly under-nourished on the continent, an increase of over 20 million in recent years. The reasons for this are complicated but related to the increasing pressures of extreme weather events. Rising temperatures and a greater prevalence of droughts across the continent has led to repeated crop failures.'' Widely read and widely shared, this topic is not trending in Africa.

Africa's environment is under serious threat, and along with it the very livelihoods of it's people. The Guardian report on the cocoa industry in Ivory Coast highlighted how the country's rainforest cover is being destroyed at a staggering rate- going from covering 25% of the country to just a mere 4% in just two decades.

The fossil fuel era is coming to an end. Renewable energy makes business sense and investors are noticing. At the end of 2017, a number of leading international banks publicly announced their intentions to divest from coal. Some of these big names included ING, The World Bank and Axa. And earlier this week Lloyd's Bank of London joined them announcing they would begin '' excluding coal from its investment strategy from 1 April.''
