climate change issues are included in the curriculum in some environmental related courses in agriculture, forestry and resource management, Land and water management as well as home economics.
What is missing is the impacts of climate change faced by southern Africa and the fact that climate change affect different sectors and levels, if the agricultural production sector is affected then definitely the health sector will be affected.
I would suggest that the college review the curriculum with the aim of emphasizing the climate change issues facing southern Africa rather than the global issues. Protection of the environment depends on collaboration and representation of everyone involved. This includes the academic and non academic staff members. There must also be improvement of irrigation system, conservation agriculture and management of water and other resources.
