COP26 : Madagascar against global warming and wants to be heard

The COP 26 is an opportunity to speak, eye to eye, with the decision makers of the world powers. And the Malagasy delegation did not shun this opportunity to be heard. Through the Head of State, Madagascar emphasized the urgency of the situation.

Climate injustice

Andry Rajoelina pointed out that in the south of the country, more than one million three hundred thousand people are already suffering, daily, the horrors of climate change. Due to the drought which is gaining ground and lasting longer than in previous years, thousands of families are in a situation of "food distress"..

"My compatriots are bearing the toll of a climate crisis in which they did not participate". For Madagascar, it is a “climate injustice”.

Some points of the Emergence Plan for the South have, including, raised in his speeches.

This is the case of the construction of a pipeline to supply water to the Deep-south.

Support for the Emergence Plan for the South has, exactly, been at the center of the exchanges between Andry Rajoelina and VIcky Ford, UK African Affairs Minister, on the edge of the summit.


The fight against deforestation is, Furthermore, the central subject of discussions during this second day of the COP 26. Talking about the situation in Africa, and the reality in Madagascar, in particular, the President of the Republic regrets that the main danger for the forests of the Big Island and the black continent is the use of firewood and charcoal.

Only in Madagascar, the vast majority of families still use charcoal for their household needs.

" To get 10 pounds of coal, however, it is necessary 100 pounds of wood, i.e. one hectare per family, each year '., says Andry Rajoelina. For the entire African continent, he claims that near 4 million hectares of forest, per year, are turned into coal.

“Our forests are the lungs of our planet. This world heritage is today, endangered. We must act today, not tomorrow, nor wait 2030 [with reference to the Sustainable Development Goals agenda (ODD)] », then pleads the Malagasy President.

Solutions durables

A promise made by them to compensate “climate injustice”, suffered by African nations.

These 100 billion, which were to be fully disbursed in 2020, were to be used to finance energy transformation and climate change projects in Africa. Only, so far, words are far from being followed by deeds. Speeches by the leaders of the G20 member states, at the COP 26 puzzle. State leaders among the biggest polluters did not even take part. Determined, Andry Rajoelina a, However, hammered, "we must act here and now".
