Welcome to our online library dedicated to transforming the way we understand and address climate change.

South Africa’s Draft Integrated Resource Plan: Communities in the Dark

As a campaigner and activist working in socially vulnerable communities for a decade, I have been eagerly awaiting the release of South Africa’s Draft Integrated Resource Plan (IRP2023). But now that it’s here, I can’t help but feel incredibly disappointed. The IRP is supposed to be a comprehensive document that outlines the assumptions about electricity demand and supply, economic conditions, and costs of generating enough electricity to meet the needs of the country. It is meant to be a roadmap for South Africa’s energy future, published by the Minister of Mineral Resource and Energy, Gwede Mantashe, but it falls short in many ways.

Navigating the climate change – food system crisis for under-resourced communities

World Food Day is celebrated annually on the 16th of October, with one of its primary aims to raise awareness of the inequalities when it comes to access to nutritious food. This is exacerbated in under-resourced communities in Africa where a number of socioeconomic factors are concerned.

Food security is a fundamental human right, and yet, climate change threatens to undermine it, especially in developing countries such as South Africa where climate induced drought, and rising food prices are jeopardising access to food. Food security is defined as the availability, accessibility, and affordability of nutritious food.

Africa Can Rise To The Climate Challenge

Every year, Africa Day gives us the chance to celebrate the diversity and success of our continent and highlight its cultural and economic potential. 

The theme for Africa Day 2023 is “accelerating the development and diffusion of emerging technologies for a green, inclusive and resilient Africa”.

Africa can rise to the climate challenge if it embraces its own potential. The African Climate Reality Project (ACRP) plays a key role in strengthening citizen engagement through awareness and capacity-building programs and training.

"Our mission is to catalyze a global solution to the climate crisis by making urgent action a necessity across every sector of society."
