Meet these young climate activists from Uganda – Evelyn Acham and Namaggwa Joan. They are demanding climate finance to recover the loss and damage faced by their communities due to climate change at COP27.
“When I was young, the weather was cooler, my home was greener, and everything was better. But right now, we have extreme weather events like there is a lot of sunshine, there is a lot of heat, there is flooding,” says Namaggwa Joan. Financial resources are required to tackle climate change and promote adaptation to existing impacts, and build resilience.
“We can provide reparations for the people to continue with their lives to recover from their losses and damages because these communities are not responsible for the climate crisis,” says another climate activist Evelyn Acham.
