This is Part Two of our four-part series, Climate Citizen, in collaboration with Global Citizen. This week, we look at the critical need for greater climate funding to help mitigate carbon emissions in the Global South and help the most vulnerable populations to adapt to climate impacts and why climate justice is only possible through fair, adequate financing. To discuss this topic, Harjeet Singh, senior adviser on climate impacts with Climate Action Network International and a strategic advisor on global partnerships with the Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty Initiative, and Mwandwe Chileshe, a Global Citizen Campaigner focused on food security, agriculture, and nutrition issues. We talk about why inadequate climate financing can't be tolerated, what the Global North needs to deliver now, and how climate impacts our food system and food security and what we should do about it.
