Africa Embarks on New Environmental Path

The Minister of Water and Environmental Affairs, Edna Molewa, says that hosting COP17 on the African continent offers an opportunity to work on a future of sustainable development, says Minister Molewa

The Minister of Water and Environmental Affairs, Edna Molewa, says that hosting the 17th Conference of the Parties (COP17) on the African continent offers an opportunity to work on a future of sustainable development.

Molewa states that Africa has contributed least to the build-up of greenhouse gases globally, but will be in the front line of the adverse effects of climate change.

She further states that the continent is highly dependent on climate-sensitive sectors such as rain-fed agriculture, adding that combined with the severe development challenges it already faces, this makes Africans particularly vulnerable to the effects of climate change.
