Lack of Funding Threatens Climate Change Response

Zimbabwe struggle to pay for measures to cope with climate stresses and weather-related disasters, says Mwando

According to Madalitso Mwando, Zimbabwe is struggling to pay for measures to cope with climate stresses and weather-related disasters, such as recent floods, amid domestic spending cuts and slow progress in accessing international finance.

Mwando says the budget for the Ministry of Environment, Water and Climate has been reduced to US$52 million for 2015, from US$93 million set aside for 2014.

As this year began with floods that have claimed some 20 lives and washed away villages, the funding squeeze has raised concerns about the country's preparedness for climate-linked disasters, which are expected to worsen as the planet warms.
