What is it like on the front lines in the fight against climate change?
Deforestation is one of the driving forces behind climate change and biodiversity loss. Across the world, we are losing 80,000 acres of tropical rainforest daily. We cannot sustain this level of deforestation. As regions develop, they often consume their precious natural resources. The African continent is one of the worlds fastest-growing regions, however, this is often causing widespread environmental degradation.
Sustainable development is attempting to tackle these exact issues and prevent the worst effects of deforestation. In nations like Zimbabwe, how can we prevent the effects of deforestation and support biodiversity?
In this video, we speak with Knowledge Vingi, the programmes coordinator for the Zimbabwe Youth Biodiversity Network. They are part of the Global Youth Bio-Diversity Network. You can see their channels and support their work here:
