The ecological and energy transition in which African countries are strongly committed will only be possible if all stakeholders are well informed, trained and supervised in the synergistic implementation of activities on the ground, APA News noted. "The implementation of all the objectives and the dissemination of good practices in our territories is necessary and urgent to significantly mitigate the harmful effects of climate change on populations and local development," the Minister added.
