Ghanaian schoolchildren have added their voice to the global strike to demand action is taken about climate change.

About 100 students have been marching in the Ghanaian capital, Accra.

Protest leader Helen Awuku said they want the government to implement climate resilient policies and adhere to its international obligations to minimize the impact of climate change on vulnerable communities.

Campaigners say rising sea levels, caused by climate change, has sped up coastal erosion, which has destroyed people's homes on Ghana's coast.

Millions of people are joining a global climate strike led by schoolchildren.

The strike was sparked by the 16-year-old Swedish campaigner Greta Thunberg, who is attending the New York protest after crossing the Atlantic by boat.
