ClimateChange is a heavy challenge for the countries and people of the global South. Africa produces only 3% of greenhouse gases but is suffering on their dramatic effects.
The latest years we saw some Climate summits failing and what remains is the awful dealing with climate-certificates – the Kyoto-Protocol implemeted this as a market-conform way of protecting the climate.
Now the ClimateCertificates are a Billion-Dollar business bargaining with the woods, the fields, the agriculture resources of the South. In Uganda we have several points of such deals. I will document this here and in section LANDGRABBING.
Another actual case (not related to climate issues) is the german »Neumann-Kaffee-Gruppe« with the 2400 ha-plantage north of Mubende called »Kaweri«.
Climate Change in UGANDA
In 2008 the british NGO OXFAM published a report on CLIMATE CHANGE and his impacts in Uganda titled: „Turning up the heat“. This is a very impressing document concerning how deep every-day-life is affected.The video shows an overview in compact animated form what the problems are (german language – my own translation. The title of the source-document shown in video is wrong.)
