​Climate Change Learning Exchange for KZN Municipalities
Municipalities play a critical role in establishing policies that address the vulnerabilities arising from climate change, Africa is most vulnerable to climate change challenges and it is the responsibility of local government practitioners to make a positive difference to tackle these issues within their municipalities.
 
The Energy Office of the eThekwini Municipality together with the Environmental Protection and Climate Protection Department (EPCPD), MILE and ICLEI hosted a three day Climate Change Learning Exchange from 8 to 10 October 2014.
 
In support of the Central KwaZulu-Natal Municipalities Climate Change Compact (CKZNCCC), eThekwini Municipality hosted the two and a half day session with over 43 participants from 13 municipalities across South Africa to share learning around Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation.
 
With informative presentations, engaging discussion sessions and exciting site visits, participants left the Learning Exchange inspired to make a change.
 
Phumzile Mhlangu, Environmental Officer at Umzumbe Local Municipality felts the learning exchange to be very useful.
 
“The learning exchange was a good experience. At Umzumbe we do not have a formal waste management system which impacts negatively to the environment. Geoff’s presentation was an eye opener. Engineering plays a pertinent role in climate change mitigation,” said the enthused Mhlangu.
