Human Beings originated in Africa about 100,000 years ago and have developed societies during the last 100 years that have contributed to climate change which risks making the globe uninhabitable for our species and many others. This symposium will examine manifestations of global warming in Africa, its differential impacts on African Populations, and the successes and failures of African and International Institutions as they attempt to mitigate the climate change process, develop sustainable economies and ensure social resilience.
