Climate change has led to broad consensus need for low carbon and climate resilient development pathways, as evidenced by a broad global consensus to limit temperature increase to 2 C. Moving towards such a pathway at the speed demanded by science needs clear policy direction from the international community, in the form of a new international agreement where emissions are cut by all nations. Developed countries must think of investing in developing countries to mitigate climate change. Climate change is a global phenomena that has impacts on all nations. The most vulnerable continent to climate change is Africa. Reaching consensus to invest in Africa for adaptation and mitigation would significantly benefit all. Investing into policy barrier removals in developing countries are prime factors for global debate.
