Although Africa is the continent that contributes least to global emissions, it will likely be hit hardest by the impacts of climate change – from rising temperatures to extreme and destructive weather events. As countries around the world try to achieve SDG 7, access to affordable, reliable, sustainable, and modern energy for all, there is a debate about the need for natural gas as a transition fuel. His Excellency Yemi Osinbajo, Vice President of Nigeria, joins the Center for Global Development, to discuss Nigeria's energy transition, climate change, and what a just energy transition means for Africa.
