Zimbabwe: Business Must Consider Climate Change
Global climate change and the significant impacts it can have on people's lives are a major challenge for developing countries. Heavy floods, severe droughts and other weather extremes are examples of those impacts which call for building up capacity to the impacts of the ever changing climate. While climate change will affect all regions of the world, developing countries are the most vulnerable. Adaptation has been taking place as a major priority by developed countries, with the many programmes already addressing the challenge in developing countries.
Now that the need for adaptation to climate change has been generally accepted as an immediate priority, the question is how does Africa fit in and how does the continent adapt? Secondly, is Zimbabwe's economy and business environment ready? Thirdly, are our business leaders thinking of climate change in their business strategy?
