Climate Change And Environment : PROGRAMME AREA

ITUC-Africa acknowledges that Climate Change is one of the most pressing issues confronting society today. Whilst all continents will be
affected by this phenomenon, developing countries are likely to be the hardest hit and people living in poverty the most affected.
The Climate Change Strategy Paper for Trade Unions in Africa emphasizes that human activities, particularly the emissions of carbon
dioxide, are the dominant cause of global warming, bringing about climate change. Other studies underline the fact that climate change
poses a moderate threat to today’s development and a severe threat to future sustainable development .
