Policy changes urged in South Africa to avert water crisis. The World Wide Fund for Nature - South Africa recently sounded the warning that the nation, which is currently utilizing 98% of available water supplies, could face major shortages by the year 2025.

The organization’s Chief Executive, Morne du Plessis, said that actions must be taken now at all government levels to avert the full impact of global climate change, especially since South Africa is currently ranked as the world’s seventh most carbon intensive economy.

We are grateful, Chief Executive du Plessis, for your timely reminder of the need for immediate action to preserve our precious resources and save lives. We pray that we may all work together for the health and survival of present and future generations.
