Championing Action Against Climate Change in South Africa

South Africa is particularly vulnerable to climate change owing to its environmental and socio-economic conditions. The impacts of climate change affect almost every sector, including agriculture, water, health, trade, transportation, infrastructural development, tourism and finance. Extreme weather events such as droughts or flooding will be felt most strongly by the poor. In addition, South Africa is a major emitter of greenhouse gases. The country's dependency on domestic coal has resulted in a yearly per capita emission rate of approximately 10 tonnes of carbon dioxide. This is 43% above the global average, making South Africa one of the 15 largest emitters of greenhouse gases worldwide and number one on the continent.
