Opinion: Investment in Local Resilience Programs Necessary

Although the effects of climate change-induced disasters with a combination of those cyclones are being experienced in a number of the Sadc countries like Mozambique, Zambia and South Africa, Zimbabwe is called upon to invest in local resilient programmes in order to cushion its citizens against climate shocks and impacts.

Whether it’s cyclone Dineo or Eline, the overall infrastructure development for national resilience is paramount to the Zimbabwean people, first and foremost.

Yes, climate change and cyclones alike are global problems, but they require local initiatives.

The manner in which these cyclone-induced natural disasters have taken their toll in many parts of Zimbabwe are threatening to reach a point of no return.
