Professor Charles Kennel, Environment and Sustainability Initiative: Africa needs our help


Themes: Energy and environment, Guest speakers

Africa needs our help

“The Global Water Initiative: Implications of Climate Change and Variability on African Water Resources”, a three-day conference co-ordinated by Cambridge Judge Business School’s Cambridge Centre for Energy Studies and held at Downing College, University of Cambridge, brought together academics from all over the World to openly debate these truly daunting questions of environmental sustainability in the face of climate change.

Professor Charles Kennel, Founder of the Environment and Sustainability Initiative, University of California, San Diego, thinks climate change is not wholly responsible for the problems Africa is facing and that population control and demography matter too. But he says the world cannot afford to see Africa experience these wide variations in climate and that what affects people there has consequences here too.
