Agri SA welcomes president Cyril Ramaphosa’s announcement at the COP 26 climate negotiations in Glasgow that South Africa has secured a multi-billion-dollar deal with developed nations.
The agricultural body says it is essential for the country to curb its high emissions and reduce its reliance on coal.
Representatives of various international communities and organisations are attending the global climate change summit COP26 in Glasgow called for a new phase in combating climate change where multi-level collaborative action becomes the new normal.
Agri SA head of Natural Resources, Janse Rabie, says the agreement entails a partnership whereby South Africa is set to be supported in moving away from its high reliance on coal-generated electricity.
