President Hage Geingob has called on countries more susceptible to the effects of climate change to harness their natural resources and explore self-reliance rather than just be recipients of aid.

Dr. Geingob was reacting to the launch of the new Loss and Damage Fund to compensate vulnerable countries and help them deal with the irreversible impacts of climate disasters.

The Namibian leader cited the country's example of developing green hydrogen using its own renewable resources and called for investments in adaptive technology and infrastructure.

President Geingob, alongside President Mokgweetsi Masisi of Botswana, was part of the high-level panel that discussed the topic 'Harnessing Climate Mobility for Adaption and Resilience', on the margins of the UN Climate Change Conference, COP 28, underway in Dubai.
