People are dying from floods, disasters like droughts that are drying up people's crops, people's food."
Vanessa Nakate from Uganda, who said: "Historically, Africa is responsible for only 3% of global emissions and yet Africans are suffering some of the most brutal impacts fuelled by the climate crisis.
"But while the global south is on the frontlines of the climate crisis, they're not on the front pages of the world's newspapers."
