The Department of Environmental Affairs in South Africa has been implementing a Natural Resource Management (NRM) programme that has been contributing towards the restoration of rangelands for several decades.

Both Ecosystem-based Adaptation and Climate Risk Finance & Insurance can be used to enhance adaptation, reduce and transfer risk, and build resilience to the growing impacts from natural and human-made hazards.

With their ability to mobilise 1.5 billion smallholder producers, forest and farm producer organisations (FFPOs) can help drive a paradigm shift away from large-scale monocultural systems, which are vulnerable to climate change and highly inequitable.

Disasters kill people, destroy infrastructure, damage ecosystems and undermine development, and could increase in frequency due to climate change. There is a need for increased awareness on the latest advances in disaster risk reduction (DRR) and climate change adaptation (CCA).

Ninety scientific institutions led by the South African National Biodiversity Institute have released a shock report that unveils waves of unprecedented climate impacts tearing across South Africa's globally important wild assets.

The word “unprecedented” has been in regular use lately. As predictions about climate change increasingly become observations, are witnessing firsthand the impacts of more frequent and severe weather events. These events are playing havoc with health, agricultural systems, communities and economy.
