South African President Cyril Ramaphosa urged his countrymen to pay attention to climate change issues and deal with them seriously, stressing that if the country wants to put the interests of the poor, the marginalized and the most vulnerable at the top of its priorities, it must deal more urgently with the effects of climate change. Its repercussions on those groups and the whole country.

“The poor in remote areas are the hardest hit by the drought, which is more frequent than ever, and the urban poor are more affected by rising food prices and the availability of drinking water, and people living in informal settlements are the most vulnerable,” Ramaphosa acknowledged. Most affected by floods associated with recurrent waves of harsh climate.

President Ramaphosa praised former Environment Minister Edna Mwelwa’s efforts last year to address the country’s environmental challenges, saying: “I have worked to ensure that environmental conservation becomes an effective and catalytic factor in achieving the objectives of the National Development Plan.

Ramaphosa believes that South Africans will have a “green good deeds program”. “It is a program aimed at changing behavior towards dumping garbage on roads, burying illegal waste,, and stressed that it is part of a government appeal and pledged at the same time “to clean South Africa, and to make our cities, villages, neighborhoods and rural and remote areas safe and healthy, so that everyone can live in it.
