Climate change is real and those of us in the global south are the ones being mostly affected even though our emission rate is low. Malawi is experiencing different challenges and that includes droughts, floods, heat waves which is resulting into unending hunger crises and increased death rates as well effects vast effects in the education sector.
Climate change is affecting everyone and it is everyone’s responsibility to fight this at all level from grassroots level. This does not consider one’s environment, educational background, financial status, family background, race or age. It is our responsibility to ensure that we are taking care of the trees we plant every year to ensure high survival rate and at the same stop the use of thin plastics which result in environmental degradation, engaging in sustainable food systems, proper agricultural practices among other climate actions which we can all do to reduce effects of climate change.
