The ERC recently submitted comments in response to the National Climate Change Response Green Paper (NCCRGP) issued by the Department of Environmental Affairs.
The next key phases in the development of the National Climate Change Response Strategy (NCCRS) are:
- White Paper Drafting
- A National Summit
In a parallel process conducted by Parliament, the Portfolio Committee on Water and Environmental Affairs invited the ERC to present their comments to the Public Hearings on Climate Change Green Paper.
ERC researcher Anya Boyd presented the ERC’s comments and fielded questions from the members of the Parliamentary Committee members together with MAPS researcher and PhD Candidate Kim Coetzee.
