Anselme Houessigbede is a Ph.D. Student in Economics at ENSEA of Abidjan in Ivory Cost and the director of the think-thank Cercle des Jeunes Economistes pour l’Afrique (CJEA). He worked on a project: “IFSPD Project on Climate change, perception and resilience strategies”.
Its main objective is to collect the opinions of the population, particularly young Africans, on how they experience climate change, what the causes, the manifestations, and the solutions needed to face it. The study covered almost 40 respondents from 9 different countries. The most represented countries are Benin and CÃ´te d’Ivoire. It appears that the young people interviewed have a relatively better knowledge of climate change. This global scourge affects populations differently with consequences on agricultural production, which compromises food security, which is already a major challenge for African countries.
Efforts must therefore be made at the global level, and countries must work in synergy in order to effectively fight against global warming.
The survival of humanity depends on it.
