The Africa Climate Action Performance Report has been published by the Observer Research Foundation. This report
evaluates Africa’s climate policy through the lens of ‘common but differentiated responsibilities,’ an asymmetrical allocation of
responsibility for climate action, determined by differences in countries’ contributions to historical emissions and their current capabilities to fight climate change.
The report compares Africa’s climate action with the rest of the world by contrasting differences in climate action and development
levels. It classifies climate action by four criteria: per capita greenhouse gas emissions, per capita CO2 emissions from fossil fuel consumption, carbon cost of growth, and the rate of per capita energy use relative to a critical minimum. This report also makes important recommendations about Africa’s climate action based on the evaluation of the performance parameters.
