The Arctic Clarion Call for Africa

image_pdfimage_print

In this article published by our Joseph Onele with The Arctic Institute (Washington DC, USA), Joseph examines how African countries can become active participants and distinguished stakeholders in Arctic affairs.

 

He underscores why African countries can no longer afford to adopt a ‘siddon look’ (a Nigerian euphemism for being passive and acting nonchalant or with great indifference).

 

Flowing from the foregoing, he made a clarion call to all concerned leaders and relevant stakeholders in African countries—particularly those with an interest in the mitigation of, and adaptation to, climate change—to rise to the occasion and realize the potentials of active engagement in Arctic affairs.
