Will Zimbabweans Benefit from Climate Change Accord?

Some farmers have welcomed the signing of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change saying this could assist them in planning agricultural activities if government implements some of the recommendations contained in the document.

One hundred and seventy five countries, including Zimbabwe, signed the agreement said to be a turning point in tackling global gas emissions.

Matabeleland South farmer, Themba Dlodlo, is among farmers who say Zimbabwe is likely to benefit from efforts being made to stop global warming.

"It’s important for government to prioritize climate change as this will help us to plan for the next planting season as weather patterns are now continually changing," said Dlodlo.

He added that unpreparedness on the part of government could spell disaster for the country's food security.
