According to a climate change expert, the $7 billion that the US government has set aside for African nations to combat climate change and advance sustainable agriculture will aid in funding adaptation efforts.
According to ABEL MUSUMALI, the investment is timely because Zambia and other African nations require funding for climate change adaptation.
Mr. MUSUMALI has urged other nations to follow the example set by the United States.
He has also urged the government to fund extension agents so that small-scale farmers can become more knowledgeable about climate change.
Mr. MUSUMALI says that since Africa requires $52 billion year for adaptation, other funders must join the effort.
Yesterday, US Vice President Kamala Harris announced a US government commitment of over $7 billion to aid the private sector in promoting and enhancing migration throughout Africa and climate resilience.
