Protecting the environment: Key focus areas

  • Engaging the minister of mineral resources to use section 49 of the Minerals and Petroleum Resources Development Act, 2002 to exclude from prospecting and mining the areas that are ecologically sensitive, especially water catchment areas.   This measure would ensure increased protection of the country’s scarce water resources.
  • Engaging local governments and companies to finance the establishments of biogas villages so as to make renewable energy more accessible to the rural poor.
  • Challenging governments and cities to take strong measures to mitigate climate change.
