Africa most exposed to climate risks – AfDB

The African Development Bank (AfDB) Group warns again that Africa is extremely vulnerable to climate hazards. The bank claimed in a statement published on its website on Tuesday that Africa contributed the least to global pollution.

The Role of Worldreader in achieving SDG 4 – Inclusive, Equitable and Quality Education: The East African Perspective

By Joan Mwachi-Amolo (Kenya) Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG 4) aims to “ensure inclusive, equitable and quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.” Among its several core targets are universal youth literacy, early childhood development, universal pre-primary, primary and secondary education, and education for sustainable development and global citizenship.

It also requires supporting teachers, educators, and families as they facilitate learning.

The Role of Libraries in realising SDG 4 – Inclusive, Equitable and Quality Education: The West African Perspective

By Nkem Osuigwe Libraries exist within the formal and informal sectors of the learning ecosystem.

December is not a deadline – don’t kill yourself

By Ugoma Johnson The Christmas season which is a celebration that is peculiar to December is always interesting and fun-filled. The joy of the season is such that is felt by all, including none Christians. Most businesses seem to boom more during the Christmas season and most business people always look forward to it. It is also an interesting time for employees as most organisations give a long holiday for workers to rest and have family time with their loved ones. The excitement, expectation, and joy that accompany the Christmas season are such that can hardly be compared to any other season. However, for

Thank God! I survived

A survivor's story of a pilot's plane crash experience By Tolu Ita Who would have thought that a flight that started in a clear blue sky would end up in a crash? But thank God, I survived.
