The government of Tanzania on Friday urged the international community to join hands in fighting climate change, saying climate change has no geographical and political boundaries.
“Since climate change has neither geographical nor political boundaries, the international community needs to implement joint efforts aimed at fighting it,” said George Simbachawene, the east African nation’s Minster of State in the Vice-President’s Office responsible for the Environment.
Speaking in commemoration of World Environment Day in the capital Dodoma, Simbachawene said Tanzanians should join other countries and institutions around the world in tackling environmental challenges for sustainable development.
Simbachawene said climate change had caused devastation to ecosystem services, including agriculture, industry, human health, fresh water and fertile soil. Enditem
