Africa has seen many raging wars and with every generation rewriting it’s history in terms corresponding to its needs. New conditions give rise to new problems, and to new developments.
A study done by from the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC), says that the effects of climate change will be combined with an ever-increasing number of people requiring more scarce resources – will, as a matter of fact, lead to regional instability and social unrest, as seen in the past.
But within the Southern African development community’s context, how likely are the water wars to happen? Researchers put such chances at 75 to 95% in the next 50 to 100 years. Water, energy and food are three of the most important yet finite resources available to man and we believe it is crucial to develop efficient conceptual tools for environmental sustainability, that we have incorporated into our core business model.
Further aggravating the already volatile situation in many African communities – Energy can be both the reason and the instrument fueling current war machines. How bad they will be, of course, remains to be revealed, but water and energy developed in the right way can lead to peace, and done the wrong way will lead to major instability and loss of economic activity.
