Definition: Décrit un climat où il fait ni trop chaud, ni trop froid. C’est un état désiré parce qu’en ce moment, avec le changement climatique, il fait (et de plus en plus il va faire) trop froid et trop chaud. Avant, à Conakry, il faisait bon vivre, le climat était doux. Maintenant, avec l’urbanisation et l’industrialisation sauvages, tout à changé : il fait trop chaud (effet de serre). Nous voulons un climat Woula Bhoubha.

Definition: Woula Bhoubha describes a climate where it is neither too hot nor too cold.  This is a desired state because at the moment, due to climate change, certain regions are increasingly becoming extremely hot and extremely cold.

For example, in Conakry, Guinea, life use to be good, the weather was mild.  Now, because of savage industrialization and urbanization, everything has changed, it is now increasingly extremely hot. We want a climate that is Woula Bhoubha.
