The glaciers covering Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania will disappear by 2050.

Glaciers around the world – including the last one in Africa – will inevitably disappear by 2050 due to climate change, according to a United Nations report.

One third glaciers located at UN World Heritage sites will melt within three decades, a UNESCO report details.

The last glaciers Kilimanjaro will disappear, like a glacier Alps and Yosemite National Park in the United States.

They will melt regardless of actions taken to combat climate change, the authors say.
