Earth Day is a reminder to Africa to grow in harmony with the environment
Earth Day poses important questions for the African continent as it seeks to balance the need for sustained economic growth to improve the quality of life of its people, on the one hand, while protecting the environment, on the other. This means balancing the important Ps, namely People, Profit and our Planet - Earth.
More than water
South Africa is one of the most water scarce countries in the world and is prone to droughts. With more than 3 million households without access to clean running water, the shortage crisis is ever-growing and there’s a need for proactive and effective solutions.
Recycling gathers momentum in Africa, growing jobs and small businesses
More and more plastic waste is being diverted from landfills and into a circular economy that grows employment and entrepreneurship in African countries, as we celebrate Global Recycling Day today (March 18).
Africa can conquer the waste problem with partnerships and co-operation
The world’s plastic packaging waste problem can be solved. That is the good news. This, however, will require multi-industry humility and collaboration and not competition, as well as intentional and resolute government intervention to level the playing field and create an enabling circular economy environment.
Africa’s focus shifts from rights on paper to economic inclusion for women
African women have growing reason to be hopeful about their futures as we mark International Women’s Day. It is true there is still a very long way to go towards gender equality, but change is gathering momentum and the days when only lip service was paid to women’s rights are coming to an end.
Taking water seriously
This water awareness month, CCBSA can celebrate significant progress in meeting their sustainability goals in relation to water savings and helping South African communities to become more water resilient.
