Chissano draws ACP-EU parliamentarians to climate change debate

There is a need to devise extensive strategies on how to deal with the adverse effects of climate change, former Mozambican President Joaquim Chissano has said. Chissano made the remarks last Wednesday during the 31st session of the African, Caribbean and Pacific group of nations and European Union (ACP-EU) Joint Parliamentary Assembly (JPA). He said climate change continues to pose major threats to the development of countries globally, and have far-reaching consequences on weather patterns in some countries. Chissano said if nothing concrete is achieved to cushion the effects of climate change, economic development could be seriously hampered, especially in the developing world. He cited the extreme diverse weather conditions his country, which he said is threatening his government’s development agenda. “We have heavy rains in the northern part of Mozambique, which has displaced families and left many stranded without a roof over their heads. “At the same time, we are battling intense drought in the south of the country, which has affected food production in that part of the country,” he said. Such diverse weather patterns place pressure on governments to thoroughly address the threats of climate change.
