Greening” trends and climate change issues

South African Resource Watch

There is an urgent need to acquire comprehensive knowledge on climate change and its impact in Southern Africa to complement global understanding as well as establish baselines for risk mitigation. SARWatch will provide critical support to inclusive stakeholder collaborative initiatives on disclosure, incidence of natural disasters at points or areas of concentrated extraction activities, and new approaches to environmental management and risk mitigation. SARWatch will also promote the development of concrete climate adaptation strategies, sustainable climate-friendly initiatives for local communities, and investment in ecosystem services for sustainable community survival and natural resource stewardship.
