“Namibia is a country that is primarily arid to semi-arid, as is about 30% of the globe. How can sustainable development take place in such environments? The Desert Research Foundation of Namibia was established to support research but also to address sustainable development throughout arid lands. The DRFN tackles issues ranging from water to energy to land from a human and a basic biophysical perspective, as well as undertaking awareness and capacity building necessary to support this approach”

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has released its latest assessment of the physical science of global warming. It warns that countries must cut greenhouse gas emissions quickly and sharply, to avoid the most dangerous consequences of climate change. There is still time to limit average global warming to 1.5°C, but nations must act now.
The report makes it clear that we still have a choice: to cut carbon dioxide emissions to net zero by 2050 and curb other greenhouse gases very fast. This could limit global warming to 1.5°C over the course of this century, and so limit the ...[Read more...]
