For many farmers and families living in Sub-Saharan Africa, climate change is a crisis they had little role in causing. But with seas rising, deserts spreading, and droughts hitting harder, they’ve had to act to protect their ways of life.

We showcased these everyday activists such as members of Friends of the Earth – Ghana, getting to work on practical solutions in their communities, cutting emissions and increasing resiliency at every turn. We also spoke with key figures at the United Nation Environment Programme, including Executive Director Erik Solheim and Africa Regional Climate Change Programme Coordinator Dr. Richard Munang.

The hour closes with music from breakout British singer-songwriter Rag’n’ Bone Man.
