South Africa’s dependence on coal as a primary fuel source for electricity generation makes it one of the top 15 greenhouse gas (GHG) emitters in the world. Climate change is already altering South African ecosystems, economies, and livelihoods.
The Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI) is one of the world’s most vulnerable areas to climate change. The country consists of 29 atolls and five individual islands situated in about 180,000 square miles (470,000 km2) of the Pacific Ocean.
Bangladesh is one of the world’s most densely populated countries and has one of the fastest growing economies. It is also one of the most vulnerable to natural hazards, including cyclones, storm surge, floods, earthquakes, and landslides.
India is currently the third largest emitter of greenhouse gases globally. It is expected to become the world’s most populous country by 2030. India’s diverse climate zones, ecosystems, and topography contribute to variably distributed climate risks across the country.
Brazil is home to 60 percent of the Amazon Basin and contains biodiverse ecosystems that provide essential services both regionally and globally. Brazil plays a critical role in the global fight against climate change, as the Amazon rainforest is one of the world’s largest land “carbon sinks,” removing more greenhouse gases (GHG) from the atmosphere than it emits.
The Government of Gabon (GoG) has shown a strong commitment to preserving natural resources. Gabon created 13 national parks in 2002, which cover 11.5% of the country, and nine marine parks and 11 marine reserves in 2017, which cover about 26% of territorial waters. Gabon chairs the Africa Group of COP26.
Indonesia is the tenth largest emitter of greenhouse gases (GHG) in the world, with land-use and energy sectors contributing 80 percent of its emissions. As a biodiversity hotspot, Indonesia’s vast tropical forests and marine habitats provide a wealth of ecosystem services.
