Mali's vulnerability to climate change

The UN Special Adviser on the Sahel, Ibrahim Thiaw, Monday described Africa’s Sahel region as “arguably one of the most vulnerable to climate change [with most likely] the largest number of people disproportionately affected by global warming”..

The meeting heard that nearly 5 million people have been displaced so far this year alone – a threefold increase in as many years, while 24 million require humanitarian assistance.

The Sahel – 10 states and some 300 million people – is also one of the most environmentally degraded regions in the world, with temperature increases there projected to be 1.5 times higher than the global average, the UN says.
