Climate change is already a measurable reality posing significant social, economic and environmental risks and challenges globally. Like many other developing countries, South Africa is especially vulnerable to the impacts of climate change (Kreft, Eckstein and Melchior, 2017).
As such, South Africa has the task of balancing the acceleration of economic growth and transformation with the sustainable use of environmental resources and responding to climate change. We know that many of the solutions to combating climate change involve using climate restorative technologies, improving climate and environmental literacy, promoting citizen science, and ensuring equity and social justice.
Central to achieving this is ensuring that local and national policies address the climate crisis and that action plans are in place down to the local level. A conducive environment to promote development, environmental rights, and a just climate change adaptation and mitigation agenda require cross-sectoral cooperation in decision making at all levels of government.
