Green belt movement


In this article the Green belt movement were focus is on famine due to prolonged drought. What I see here  is evidence of governments particularly in developing countries not being proactive in preparing or alerting the commons of long droughts to come. This also brings up an important point how proactive are the governments in addressing climate change in africa to where there is no media or communication infrastructure. This is still an area undergoing research but is a concern, how do you discourage locals from chopping trees down as a source of energy, and what alternatives are the governments offering to individuals in the rural areas.

Also highlighted in the article is locals resorting  to exotic  tree as a way of combating environment degradation. The question remains how effective are these plants for the climate and are they conducive for generally hot countries in the east of africa.
