Everyone is talking about climate change. Scientific studies confirm an increase in concentration of greenhouse gases (GHG). The largest growth of GHG emissions between 1970 and 2004 has come from energy supply, transport and industry, while residential and commercial buildings, forestry and deforestation and agricultural sectors have been growing at a lower rate. South Africa is among the top 20 international per capita emitters of GHG, making up 1.6% of the global total. South Africa is vulnerable to the impact of climate change and, as a signatory to both the UNFCCC and Kyoto Protocol, has begun implementing mitigation measures to reduce GHG emissions.
