Ineza Grace spoke out at a major meeting about how climate loss and damage are valued at the international climate summit COP26. She delivered a powerful message that climate-vulnerable communities can’t adapt to starvation and that finance for irreparable damage to the climate is a matter if justice.
Grace, just 25, is co-founder and chief executive officer of the global Loss and Damage Youth Coalition. She also leads The Green Protector, an organisation that focuses on Rwanda’s sustainable development and environmental education, and acts as a community think-tank.
Grace, a trained environmental engineer, tells Africa Science Focus how Grace believes that Sub-Saharan African women are heroes who face the climate crisis every day.
