Combating Climate Change in Namibia
Namibia is a semi-arid country in sub-Saharan Africa. Due to its climatic conditions, the country is highly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. The country has been hard hit by droughts and floods.
16-year-old Samantha, a passionate youth advocate, has interviewed key people, from Ministers to UN country representatives, and visited projects to educate young people on what can be done. This resulted in a 30-minutes long documentary shared with schools and various stakeholders.
This photo is therefore a celebration of the work done by one young person to make a difference. This specific photo was taken during Samantha’s interview of the United Nations Development Programme resident representative to Namibia, Mrs Alka Bhatia.
As we approach COP26, there are a lot of opportunities to take action both to combat the climate crisis and to work to build active resourcing and support for communities most affected by the climate crisis. Click on any of the links below for starting points to get involved:
