The English Defence League march in Peterborough on Saturday was not the first I've witnessed. In fact, it was tediously familiar.

The world over, we are seeing ever more cases of extreme weather, from the recent floods in the UK to wild fires in Australia. With each incident comes the familiar assurances that - this time - the necessary action will be taken to make sure there is no repeat. The reality is we have no choice, as every country faces the fact that climate change - and its impact on the weather - is no longer a distant prediction, but a daily reality. And for the poorest people on the planet, the need to change is not just a matter of saving money, but saving lives.

Four years ago it was proven that if you give people HIV drugs and they take them, their chance of infecting someone else falls by at least 96%. It's stupid to drive into hiding the people you may need to treat to continue your fight against AIDS.

As an African, when I witness the devastating effect poaching of these iconic animals has it makes me incredibly sad. Clearly the loss of a beautiful creature is terrible, but the amount of tourists that these animals bring into countries like Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania means that the impact goes way beyond the wildlife, and actually devastates communities.
