1:31 am
and i hope she can rest in peace. the queen story can not be told without africa. we look at the relationship she had with many african countries. also coming up the raw impacts of climate change on africa, on the failure of the west and show in the commitment africa lead as lashed out industrialized nations were not showing up at the summit in the docs that you brought the down. there was dedicated to help in african nations adapt to the impact of climate change. you see, i think that as we made the effort to leave africa and come to rotterdam, it would have been easier for the europeans and the others to also be here. after all, they're the main polluters of the planet who is known to the table massive. and i think that's where the struggle is, is that we need to continue to see this as the next special fit for everyone. and also just one side of the well
1:32 am
ah, i am eddie micah, julia and you are welcome to the program. that is the end of an era. queen elizabeth died after his 70 year reign tribute. subbing pouring in from all over the world would take a look at the queen's relationship with africa and what kind of legacy she leaves. but 1st, let's hear how people across the continent will remember her. will miss her calm demeanor. her leadership, us, one of the few women leaders in the world and also her contribution to blew up and says, well i as the woman, the guy who is one of the women who made the whole world proud in this pit track our world. yeah. enjoying her when dana and most of africa conscious were so under colonialism. and we thought as a point she would have apologized as based on what people did to us. but she didn't . and only know we still have it is foolish. it was hey,
1:33 am
who is here for in ms. louis and perfect? she was wanted, what was it to be peace, even though she is limited to how much influence she could have at the time. but i think she tried her best. i mean, nobody's perfect, but she, she tried her best. so i think in africa we have a lot of respect for her. i think we have to bring back all our jewelry and oh, gold in our diamonds that i in the crown. they have to bring back everything. they be stripped from africa. she was 96 years old, so it's to be expected on. she's lived, her very historic, tremendous life and i hope she can rest in peace. i don't think the death of the queen affects me. boys i am, i'm pretty young and she's a british state and she's a british and i'm canyons it does offer to me that months. clearly mixed reactions there. but one thing is for sure, the story of the queen can not be told without looking at
1:34 am
a relationship she had with many african countries. here's why. queen elizabeth had a special relationship with african she turned $21.00 on a visit to south africa. and she was in kenya when she heard that her father, king george the 6th, had died. grievous news of her father's death reached the young queen married 25 at this not. and in the highlands of east africa, she returned home for her coronation. the archbishop lores the 5 pound symbol of might and power, and as he places it upon the queen's head and removes his hands, the assemblage in one boy's cries, god save the queen. during his 2nd year reign, the queen returned to africa on numerous occasions. this is her visiting zimbabwe than rhodesia in 1965. prior to that in 1956,
1:35 am
the queen had been in nigeria. in 1961, she made her 1st trip to gonna elizabeth toward uganda. in 1954 and in 2007. she also visited ethiopia, but not the more recent to commonwealth. memphis, rwanda, gabon, toga, or cameroon. over the decades, the queen met most of africa's notable leaders, including nelson mandela, julius narita, mobile to stacy sake of an ellen johnson, sir leaf in some african country. places institutions and streets carried queen elizabeth's name for many decades.
1:36 am
well, the queen also touched many lives. he spoke to one woman in ghana who met her in person when receiving the young lead as a ward. and i was for young people across the commonwealth who dedicate their lives to serve the communities in unique ways. i mean a bower shares her memories of the queen with us. the news of her person is, ah, so do by stating. but again, an opportunity for us to reminisce and celebrate and long last to legacy her unmatched humility on dignity and values of of service ah, will continue to live in me especially and the lives of the young people she inspired. i'm the one on one posture in the award presentation is one that reminds me of how my grandmother was keeping me the last best way in the house. just to persuade me to go to school. i was actually shedding tears while receiving
1:37 am
the award from her. the moment of touching her hand as one that made me feel had received some new breadth of life. is a once in a lifetime experience thou for ever cherish. i'm so my touch of sympathy our, the royal family and the english people may have beautiful. so it lists my we've invited my study, i'm an anna historian, professor on foreign policy experts at the united states international university, africa facing nairobi, kenya, hello, and welcome to the program. say, now we've been here in some mixed reactions from across the continent. what kind of legacy do you think the clean leaves behind in africa, the continuity, or where the british presence of the head of the commonwealth? which bear with me for my bridge girl is our member by josh, that she will, that's suitable. so under very possible bustle and people later now, but the go,
1:38 am
the common with legacy that she leaves but very positive. the other part being come on, you know, part of the more not during colonial period towards the last the last decade of colonial. you may not be very pleasant, but the transition from colonialism to independent then involving the commonwealth that goes to law. that gives us, i'm credit. oh, i mean, you touched a bit on that because yes, in a way she represented a country that colonized parts of africa. but what role did she play in africa fight for independence from british colonial rule? was you do you look good? really struggle for independence? sure. that he spend recipient of this drug with jill. the good thing about i, you, that she took her tooth, right. of course, the prime minister, the minister was, would go to the she and the father, she became a queen where she was in kenya. and what you some money rules it gives, it gives
1:39 am
a little bit of relevance to yet again and to other people. but she did not have plea was i knew a roland dickory position. she was the recipient of the struggle against colonies. and she didn't remember either, definitely a well put on your side, but some say she wasn't really in a position to it just after she started her rule. she was why were describe, say, was open to the idea of it happening. this is she was open to the idea of being a young lady was just him trying to address a very good word to adjust the realities of the day. and i think are handling with the common will be woven. common was there, isn't there some dispatch, but she seemed to blend very well. we've been you in the been
1:40 am
a countries unmet crim fuel and we are welcome in the common was part of it. so there she made them feel good. acceptable. which was a recruiting store and for that reason she was really popular, learned by the commonwealth expanded when she was there. so we had country like was only going to run a join moving about british columns. a to be good. you mentioned earlier how frequently she was visiting that continent, kenya is as one of the countries that she was at a particularly when she had of the the news of the death of her father. how would you describe her overall personal relationship with the african continent? generally good, you will if you do not, dick, you should possible issues with her. there she was a symbol or must system. what was not very good. do you recall 100 but as a person,
1:41 am
i don't give you a diagram anger on ha debiana. they just saw as a symbol of a system, but was not very good. well this, if there was one, has done that, that google is all around the country. you the prime minister, the ministers, as she's just symbolic, over long lasting 15, all the british imperialism. and there's the teacher hand, well, she's absolutely good to look well doesn't matter who didn't go to emulate her go. she looked good, but there is no, i wasn't you towards as a bus. ok. not half a person but the system that of the term she was part of by to professor maria montana historian and foreign policy expert, and i will be kenya. thank you for your insights. thank you very much. lou. best hour shift the focus to another huge issue. and one of the
1:42 am
biggest challenges of our time climate change africa is baron the browns of the global climate emergency. the un says climate change threatens to expose of a 100000000 vulnerable africans to droughts, flats, and extreme heat by 2031 of the worst hit countries is somalia, almost 8000000 people there or about half the country's population are facing crisis, hunger levels. the most affected area is the be region in the south, the you and says barron, a massive influx of assistance that region as likely to see a full scale farming in the coming months. southern somalia, this is what the worst drought in decades looks like. people displaced by climate change and conflict. their only source of water is this distribution center in a displaced persons camp. the united nations humanitarian agency has been sounding
1:43 am
the alarm for some time. i been shocked to my call these past few days. by the level of pain and suffering, we see so many somalis, enduring famine is out the door. and to day we are receiving a final warning. it's been for failed rainy seasons in a row. and now the u. n's has a 5th one is on the way, but the problems in somalia run even deeper decades of civil conflict, mass displacement, and one of the lowest standards of living in the world. what's happening in the horn of africa is a threat to a way of life, which is sustained families and communities for generations. it's not just a lack of rain for full seasons. for many families, it's an end to the way they've lived. a search and food prices worldwide and
1:44 am
a grain shortage triggered by the war and ukraine have made the situation worse. this entire region is on the brink of extreme hunger, waiting in vain for the drought to end. clearly to prevent such impacts of climate change in africa, something needs to be done urgently. an industrialized countries need to fulfill the off fund and promises for contribution the most to climate change. that's a points that was reiterated by ganette president than elk grove auto. i was earlier this week in rotterdam, africa contributes the least to the climate emergency responsible for less than 4 percent of global emissions. yet we are facing increasing and more intense climate related extreme events. when the, the, the crossroads that we want our continent to thrive, we have to adapt to climate change. and to achieve this adaptation financing needs
1:45 am
to start flowing at scale. and that's why any others we, african leaders traveled to the africa adaptation summit in rotterdam, netherlands. but he will be on partners did not turn up, and that was strongly criticized by african leaders, mission pool monkey donati. i want a note with a taste of bitterness. the absence of the leaders of the industrialized world. i think that if we made the effort to leave africa and come to rotterdam, it was easier for the others to be here. they are the main polluters of the planet . and they are the ones who have to finance adaptation to fergie berg fin offer lot . a lot of hitler, i'm fond of that sun. com lacoff can, as we've observed, the private sector, one of the main polluters. my is also absent bootable balloon. so that gives us a taste of unfinished business before even starting this meeting. today,
1:46 am
i just had to express this disappointment removed death of so joel, there is a gun mar. i would also like could the blog, the absence of leaders of the industrialized nations and use as well as the representatives of the private sector. dar, do sector play v g. so lee gemalto said that the biggest blue does lou and would have had to answer to our questions here on august the young the absence of european lead as clearly disappointing for africa lead us as my colleague christine montoya, who was at the summit also reports. i am in the dat city of rotterdam and while this country, the netherlands, is one of the wealthiest in the world. it 2 faces and existential traits as it pertains to climate change. but the difference is this country has been able to invest in the infrastructure needed to literally keep the country afloat. now have a look at that building behind me that is literally the world's largest floating
1:47 am
office to give you a sense of what i'm talking about. it is in that very building that global leaders gathered for the africa adaptation summit. over the years we seen the international community make huge pledges and commitments to helping africa in with climate finance. but that money hasn't necessarily always follow through. and now this summit, which was held right before the cops summit coming up in egypt and in november, the idea was to get leaders on board to get that renewed commitment. but we have to talk about the elephant that wasn't in the room. and that is that while african presidents made the trip to be and rotterdam, they european counterparts largely snubbed the conference. and so that did set the tone, but nevertheless, we were able to get a conversation with the president of the african development bank. a team will be additional who spoke about the urgency for africa and the cost of inaction. uppercase actually suffer in africa, isn't a terrible situation. we've got acquired. jessica flowed so happening. you check the situation is empowered. you check the case in malawi,
1:48 am
retake the case also. are in zambia, our palm out by a hurricane. i mean this, i don't die that destroyed more than $2500000000.00. what of infrastructure? your take a look at best try no cyclone that she'd madagascar, you know, and totally decimated many things across the country. you know, and put about 600000 farmers. they couldn't really, um, you know, it was flooded and sorta had put in that support to look at the horn of africa. that suffering for he missed amounts of heat. la costa invasions, but are all linked to climate change. you look at the sahalina region of africa, you know, all across this. i help, you know, you have drought on all of that. so basically, africa is not just a been affected by climate change is totally distressed by climate change. and therefore, the whole issue is africa which contributed no more than 3 percent of the problems we have to day. a soft friend, a deluge of problems. as a result of that, you know,
1:49 am
we lose on the continent to day. anything between $7.00 and $15000000000.00 a year as a result of climate change and we have very low income country countries to it generally. and if we don't get in our climate finance, there will rise to $50000000000.00 a year. you can imagine hammered that is for us almost 7 percent of our g, d. p would be, would be, would be loss because of our, of, of climate change. and so we do need to have a lot and the amount of climate finance that africa needs when he lent him between one on and $12000000000.00 a year to $125000000000.00 a year. but africa, it's only getting 3 percent of global finance. right. and so it, which means that africa, which actually did not cause climate change, is now suffering disproportionately from that. and that's why for us, elaborate, can't develop and bang. we decided to take a bowl their foot, right? we say we're look, we are just going to wait for everybody else. we gonna go out and start doing climate adaptation monies for us on the african development bank. so we launch was
1:50 am
called the african adaptation acceleration program. we like to call it triple a p rate. that easy to remember? exactly. yeah, 3 p h p. speed easier to remember? well, what's the goal? we decided to mobilize $25000000000.00 to support climate action for our, for africa, together with a global center on adaptation. and to show that we really mean business. the african development bank put down $12500000000.00 out of the trip. $25000000.00. so we just tried to raise stroke when $5000000000.00 for that. but that set is still very small for it. got it, you know, compared to what we need to do. so what we need to do is that the $100000000000.00 a year that were promised by to develop countries to developing countries. so. so for climate finance impact, glad apparition for africa really needs to be on the table. you know, i like encouragement, you know, at which is good, but encourage been was translate into finance concrete. he some of the money that you've talked about that the bank, for example, i has,
1:51 am
has made investments. can you tell us where this money is going and what is it actually doing? okay, let me just take the case of agriculture for security. you know, we provide it, we have a program that core technologies for african, agricultural or transformation is a platform that brings up highly performing technologies, climate resilient technologies to farmers at scale. you know, i don't like mickey mouse stuff. i don't like little stuff. i like big things, africa as 1400000000 people. we must be walking at scale and that's the skill at which we work at the african development bank. so for example, tick the case a wit. okay. which is a temporary crop. right? but we've been able to provide a wide variety to african countries now about heat tolerant weed for right with music and growing hot environment. so we provided that to student in 2018. and so then in 2 years was able to reduce a suite import by 50 percent. well, as a result of this, hitler on brightest take the case of our ethiopia. now,
1:52 am
just to give you a sense, we give then 65000 metric tons of seed. now i don't want to be technical, but just tell you what that is. so if you take an air boss roughly 80 aircraft mcquease elijah's faint jane plain view. jan. place ok. they total weight of the people of the cargo or the fall is 90. 8.4 of metric tons, it's when i say we provided ethiopia with 6. if i a 1000 metric, tons of cit, that's about 666, it have boys, 380 aircraft packed on a land is to the been. so you can just the magic full proceed. now it revolutionize and try and some things for a p o. p, a. in 2018. they cultivated this new varieties on hitler and varieties on 5000 hector's right by 2021, 22 and a 20. when they had reached one ah, a to 7000 hacked site. and by lisha they had raised 645 powers on hacked. so out for the 1st time in utopia history,
1:53 am
that it in import with this year matched the other prime minister tells me i be a mad bet they will become in net exporter well, of we to, for the 1st time in the history for that is the kind of technology that we're talking about that we do, i give you an example. what we do. we have a program called african disaster risk insurance facility, which basically when countries go to drought, you know, you got to ensure your farm as your pastorelli is because they lose a lot of their animals and stuff like that. or that countries have catastrophe, risk advanced. you know, you have to ensure your content because you have to take money out of your public finance and to repair infrastructure and all of that. so these particular one we did it for, ah, we now have about 10 countries that we support with it. and a good example was madagascar when b at cyclone of destroy hit, that we actually insured them with $4000000.00 against catastrophic risk of that. so when that happened, they were able to get an insurance pay out of $12000000.00,
1:54 am
which allowed them to be able to compensate 6 on a 1000 farmers that were affected by the. so that is the kind of practical thing that we are talking about in terms of action at scale miss present. thank you very much for your thanks. i thank you so much. i appreciate it. ah, that's where we draw the curtain on the show. last tribute to the queen pour in. i leave you with what some african heads of states had to say. starting with kenya's, president elect william, brutal. the queen's leadership of the commonwealth for the past 7 decades is admirable. she stared institutions evolution into a firm for effective multi lateral engagement who's potential to drive tremendous social, economic progress. remain. incontestable. said african precedent. sir, i'm a pause. i said, the queen's commitment and dedication, june has 70 years on the throne. it means ennoble and virtuous example for the entire world. and major impress then to a ha, my double harry said,
