Shamiso Mupara Says Zimbabwean Communities Suffer From Climate Induced Drought

Founder and executive director of Environmental Buddies Zimbabwe Trust Shamiso Mupara says communities in the country have been facing climate induced droughts for more than a decade.

Speaking to Steve during the COP26, Shamiso said she has a vision for change for her village in Zimbabwe.

The climate activist said there is need for resources to be chanelled towards adaptation and mitigation of climate change in developing countries.

Mupara grew up in Marange, an area affected by large-scale diamond operations. The village has experienced many political and environmental consequences as a result of diamond mining – including polluted water sources, ailments in local livestock and livelihoods, and rampant deforestation.
