MBABANE: Jabulani Mabuza, the Acting Minister of Natural Resources and Energy says the time to tackle climate change is now “ before we suffer long-lasting consequences.” 

The Minister was speaking during the Earth Hour Symposium and launch of Earth Hour 2023 today.This year’s Earth Hour will be commemorated on 25 March, under the theme: “Investing in our planet,”Shape Our Future.

“The energy sector is confronted with many challenges which threaten the supply of electricity.  The climate change impacts are exacerbating the situation and it is expected to worsen in the future. More extreme storms and flooding, extreme droughts, extreme heat, water and energy shortages, more pollution and loss to biodiversity will be evident. The recent heavy storms and floods are examples of extreme events which show that as a country we are not immune.This year’s launch will not only sensitise the country on energy savings but will also focus on the increasing need, across all sectors, to discuss mitigation strategies and actions towards climate change,” said the Acting Natural Resources Minister as quoted by Government online platforms.
