Taking the stage at a major meeting to look at the way that climate loss and damage is valued at the international climate summit COP26, Ineza Grace delivered a powerful message: climate-vulnerable communities cannot adapt to starvation, and finance for irreparable climate damage is a matter of justice.

At just 25, Ineza is co-founder of the global Loss and Damage Youth Coalition. She also leads The Green Protector, an organisation that focuses on Rwanda’s sustainable development and environmental education, and acts as a community think-tank.

An environmental engineer by training, Ineza tells Africa Science Focus that women in Sub-Saharan Africa are heroes who live every day with the growing challenges of the climate crisis.
