The Hope We Have
Julius Ng'oma is the National Coordinator of the Civil Society Network on Climate Change, a Malawian organisation that works to promote Climate Justice, and is passionate about fighting for change.
"The fundamental principle of climate justice is that those who are least responsible for climate change suffer its gravest consequences. Countries such as Malawi are currently suffering the terrible impact of climate change, with frequent droughts and flooding destroying people’s crops and homes.
"In Malawi, not only are we experiencing the impact of climate injustice today, but it will continue for years to come, manifesting itself through frequent droughts, flooding, and diseases affecting crop yields. Malawi’s economy is mainly based on agriculture, so disasters like these will damage the income, livelihoods and health of many thousands of people."
