11:20 am
global center on the patients headquarters in the largest floating office in the world in the netherlands today. so, and this is also coming right ahead of the cops when 7, which is going to take place in november in egypt this year. so we have seen that the leaders are, did this summit is bringing together civil society, the global leaders youth youth. the leaders did the central banks and the development banks and so on. so they say that the discussion today on that edition is going to continue on for main pillars. the 1st one is the agriculture and the food security and african infrastructure resilience, accelerator and empowered in youth for interpreters, shape and job creation in adaptation, and also innovative financial initiatives for africa to develop or to increase the capacity of the african companies have access to their adaptation finance, so to they will see whether they are going to achieve these goals or not. but one
11:21 am
of the main issue is, is that even the organizers are seeing that even though the organizers are seeing that this initiative, this summit is lad and owned by african leaders, african nations. however, have heard the concerns from several african african leaders regarding this. so the, at the european ambitions and the african reality for now is not matching. african leaders are seeing that they have just discovered tremendous resources of oil and gas, and only economies, which has been further detail later because of the impact of the cobit and award in ukraine. and we need to sell this gas and oil to the willow power economies. so in that sense, there is a gap between the european stance and the african states. so today we will see whether they are going to overcome these differences. and now we can see that arrivals off the leaders presence of ghana and the synagogue,

11:23 am
a few weeks ago. literally, every day the ocean is moving, moving in, destroying people home and having a devastating effect to people in, in, in monrovia, specifically during the rainy season, we've seen on press it that said rain and it's not just happening here on the coastline of liberia. it's happening throughout west for a job. in fact, scientists believe that several key historical sites are perhaps going to disappear if this rising ocean continues to move forward. there are about a 100 sites historical sites, important not only for african history, but for humanity. and if not more is done for people here to adapt to protect their livelihood than those sites will be destroyed. take a look at our report. providence island holds the promise of
11:24 am
a pass yet to be discovered 200 years ago. fried american slaves settled here and founded liberia. we visited the island in october 2021. look at it now. the island appears to be shrinking. with the rising tide, a window into the past is disappearing, says young librarian archaeologist for day is painful because this coronets our histories, there is no threat in that in the next few years. what all will cover the entire, please the about you raising the entire historical site of the republic. in the summer liberian and american archaeologist excavated parts of the island. they found ceramics from ships from the caribbean, the america in europe, but also further afield. their findings brought more questions than answers. on the other side of the atlantic, american archaeologist met riley says it isn't just parts of liberian history but
11:25 am
american history as well. being lost to the rising water, just about a meter below the surface, you're encountering the water table. artifacts that were already being absorbed into the river bed system. and as the water table continues to rise, these archaeological deposits are at risk of being destroy, losing the archaeological integrity of these very significant sites before we even have a chance to study them. and that goes for many of those significant heritage sites across the coastal region. all 900 century sites that were settled by free african americans which represent an unparalleled type of story in the history of the african diaspora. almost 800000 people across west africa are displaced because of ongoing torrential, rains and floods. monrovia is barely a meter above sea level. with the rising ocean, the slums are sinking and so are the historical sites. on providence island archeologist found the remains of vessel artifacts and settlements. but look at it
11:26 am
now. it is for them race against the tie to dig in, retrieve what they can, because an important chapter of human history is disappearing as we speak for young archaeologists. full day there is a sinking feeling of grief. too alarmed, lost to seeing his roots, his identity vanish, and the water. nicholas hawk al jazeera, providence island liberia. the chinese city of chang do has extended its karone of ours, locked down as the government continues its 0 cove and policy. many of the 21000000 residents have been confined to their home since thursday. patrick folk is more beijing who reported previously the authorities on actually given any specific timeline for how long this lockdown would go on for inching to. but they did say on sunday that we go on for at least another 3 days in the central jin chang, district, and ordered people there to go for another round of mass testing. a 3rd round of
11:27 am
testing was ordered in other districts as well. and people were told to go home immediately afterwards. a total of around a $120.00 cases was reported on sunday for the 24 hours prior. there was little bit of a drop from the 150 cases reported the day before. meanwhile, and sions and case loads, there have stayed more or less steady, just over 80 cases reported there on sunday and authorities are adopting a 3 tier system mentions. and so people in low risk areas are allowed to move around. now they had been confined to their compounds over the weekend and, but people in medium and high risk areas are still under locked down according to the financial news outlet. china sin, there are currently a total of 33 cities in china, either under full or partial lockdown. a lot of this is happening many people believe because it's in the run up the final weeks to the commas parties. congress

in the middle of october and says, so we are expecting things to tighten even further. but economists ad nomura released a note on friday saying that expectations that things might ease after that are optimistic. and they expect that covert curbs could remain in place until the middle of march. and the 7 people have been killed in an earthquake that has hit se in china. the china struck just outside the city, a can gain local media, putting a number of towns, incision, one province had been seriously damaged by lance lights to the u. s. on people in jackson, mississippi, facing an unprecedented water crisis. more than $160000.00 residents have run out of safe drinking water. the government is distributing bottle water, but there's not enough to supply the anti city. pension monahan has more cars lining up around the block all to get the most basic of human necessities. for nearly a week, the people at jackson, mississippi have been struggling with
11:29 am
a serious water shortage. the national guard are providing relief. some are happy for the help. others are growing in patient. i'm not able to cook, like i want to cooks not able to brush my teeth like i want to do to the water quizes. and i'm just certainly grateful that they are the national guard and everyone is out, you know, trying to help us. so we can see i have, i have the life and maintain on a daily basis. and my home, the water is running very slowly. it's our most into agent in the entire city of jackson, you know, just not one individual. and i blame rhyme the, the city council, the governor and the mayor because they're all in confusion and no one thing to know how to solve the problem. fema, the federal emergency agency, it's working to end the crisis inspectors toward this water plant where heavy rains overwhelmed the cities, aging infrastructure. they're hoping to speed up repair work,
11:30 am
but play down expectations of a quick return to normality. yeah, i think it's still too early to tell dana, i think that having e p a in the army corps of engineers, we had a really good conversation on friday about what it's going to take him, the assessments that they're doing, the longer term in the mid term about how long it's going to take to actually make it safe to drink. things that we have a lot more to learn about what it's going to take to get that plan up and running. in tens of thousands of homes, water has slowed to a trickle. and what they do get isn't safe to drink. but this isn't a new problem. state and federal authorities are being blamed for allowing jackson's infrastructure to crumble for decades. jackson is overwhelmingly black, and many se rates is a factor. we have been getting punished for quite some time for being a predominantly black city. i can recollect these issues for as long as i've been here and i was born in 1983 and jackson.
