COP20: Afghanistan’s climate change challenge

Afghanistan’s envoys to the UN climate talks outline the problems their country faces linked to climate change – untimely floods, droughts and rainfall they say are linked to global warming.

“Afghan people are suffering a lot from climate change, but we’re usually in the news because of conflict and suicide attacks. Lots of people are losing their lives from natural disasters in my country. It’s a big issue these days.”
