    Africa’s megacities threatened by heat, floods and disease – urgent action is needed to start greening and adapt to climate change - Africa


    | Meelan Thondoo | The Conversation Ecological Crisis Climate Change

    Cities cover just 3% of the planet. But they emit 78% of all global greenhouse gas emissions, absorb 80% of final global energy (what consumers use) and consume 60% of clean drinking water.

    African megacities like Lagos, Nigeria (with 21 million residents) and Cairo, Egypt (with 10 million residents) are experiencing significant temperature increases due to the urban heat island effect and climate change.

She explains what cities in Africa are doing to mitigate climate change, and what further steps they need to take to protect their populations.
