first_img20 October 2005An agency that will coordinate South Africa’s efforts to combat climate change was launched at the National Climate Change Conference in Midrand, Johannesburg this week.Minerals and Energy Minister Lindiwe Hendricks told the conference that the move was in line with the Kyoto Protocol, which requires developing countries to establish a designated national authority (DNA) to participate in clean development mechanism (CDM) activities in promoting sustainable development.The CDM is a mechanism established to combat climate change and promote sustainable development, and in the process assist developing countries to meet their sustainable development objectives.South Africa’s new agency will regulate CDM activities in SA, promoting the country to attract investors and project developers.Already, it has received four project design documents from the private sector, one of them being for the Kuyasa Low-Cost Housing Project in Khayelitsha, Cape Town, which is registered as the first CDM project in Africa.These projects, if implemented, will help reduce South Africa’s emissions by 21 million tons by 2012 and generate an estimated R618-million from the sale of certified emissions.Hendricks said the effects of climate change on the country’s biodiversity was significant and that regions most affected by prolonged drought cycles would be more vulnerable in coming years.“We run the risk that our grandchildren and great-grandchildren may not be able to enjoy the visual splendor of the fynbos of the Western Cape or the daisies of Namaqualand,” she said.Hendricks said the country’s energy efficiency strategy set out a national target of 12% improvement in energy efficiency by 2014, which would contribute towards a reduction in carbon emissions.The minister said South Africa also needed to look “keenly” at nuclear energy as a means of reducing carbon emissions and meeting the needs of a growing economy.Source: BuaNews Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more


first_imgExpressing anguish over the flouting of the order of the National Green Tribunal by devotees during the Chhath Puja, who broke open the gates of a Kolkata waterbody and performed rituals, Kolkata Mayor Firhad Hakim on Tuesday said that the state cannot suppress expression of any religious belief by using force.“They were not taking the law into their own hands. How can we use batons or tear gas on such people?” Mr. Hakim said.On November 2, thousands of people broke open the locks of the Rabindra Sarovar and performed Chhath Puja in the waterbody. In an order in 2017, the NGT had “strictly prohibited” performance of any puja, community picnic or organisation of other social events in and around the Sarovar. Spread over 192 acres, Rabindra Sarovar boasts of a huge biodiversity. On November 3, a film of oil floated above the lake water and several animals were found dead. According to the Mayor, 14 ponds were specially constructed for the puja so that devotees spare this waterbody. “I am sorry that despite taking many initiatives, we could not stop the devotees from going to Rabindra Sarovar. We did all what we could do but the people who traditionally come to Rabindra Sarovar came in large numbers and we could not stop them,” he said. The Mayor also suggested that ‘environmentalists’ should have instead spread awareness on the issue.“If the Mayor had listened to what the environmentalists had to say, then they would not have approached the courts,” Naba Dutta, a well-known environmentalist, said. Mr. Dutta said the ban on performing puja at Rabindra Sarovar was a result of years of legal intervention and it did not happen in one day. Trinamool Congress MP Abhishek Banerjee had expressed his displeasure over the way devotees stormed into the lake.last_img read more
