Deutsche Welle has developed a new program focusing on environmental concerns in Africa. In partnership with Nigeria's Channel TV, eco@africa offers a wide variety of topics that are not only fascinating but vital for the future of the continent.
Last year has broken climate records: It has been the warmest year since records began and extreme weather events have increased around the world. Two recent reports confirm, once again, that climate change is happening.
On this week's eco@africa we find out how to make wind energy with kites, explore how a German company is cashing in on e-waste and take a look at the threats Ethiopia's nomads are facing from climate change.
Climate change can be a good thing. At least for the arid Sahel region in Africa, where rainfall has been increasing as the world warms up. But to avoid dire negative consequences, precautions must be taken now.
The best personal choices to reduce our individual contribution to climate change are living car free - and having fewer children, a recent study shows. But is it a realistic solution to have no children at all?
