Will China and Wealthy Countries Pay For Climate Damage in the Global South?

Join us for a very lively end-of-week show where Eric, Cobus, and Geraud get into a spirited debate over whether China, India, and wealthy countries will pay for the damage they’ve caused to poor countries in Africa and elsewhere from global climate change.

Geraud, like many in Kenya, is also baffled over the terms of Kenya’s multi-billion loan agreement with China to build the Standard Gauge Railway and Cobus shares some insights on Africa’s presence at this week’s G20 summit in Indonesia.
