The G8 summit can choose to act now, or see human development gains go up in smoke, the coalition warns.The report, with a foreword by Archbishop Desmond Tutu and pictures, graphics, and case studies throughout, details the impact that climate change is already having on Africa and the threat it poses to human development.
