African leaders on Wednesday proposed new global taxes and reforms to international financial institutions to help fund climate change action in a declaration that will form the basis of their negotiating position at November’s COP28 summit. The Nairobi declaration capped the three-day climate summit in Kenya, which was dominated by discussions of how to mobilize financing to adapt to increasingly extreme weather, conserve natural resources. For more insight into the summit, VOA’s Esther Githui-Ewart spoke to Jackson Kinyanjui Koimbori, an agriculture and climate change scientist.
