In 2022, SECTION27 made submissions to the Climate Change Bill that focus on the human rights impact of the climate crises.
On 28 October 2022, SECTION27 made oral submissions to the Portfolio Committee on Environment, Forestry and Fisheries. These submissions address two issues that arose during the question and answer session with Honourable members of the Committee.
The first question these submissions address is SECTION27’s general assessment on why it is necessary to strengthen governance structures, whereas the country has enacted the Intergovernmental Relations Framework Act 13 of 2005 and has introduced the District Development Model.
The second part of the submissions seek to offer a more detailed response to the question on what an adaptation plan for Basic Education would look like.
