Japan is gearing up for a new era
In October 2020, the country declared its intention to become carbon neutral by 2050. The government aims to reduce the more than one billion tons of greenhouse gases the country produced in 2018 to 930 million by 2030 and net zero by 2050. Eliminating carbon emissions is particularly critical. Some scientists estimate that global temperatures could be held at 2.1°C or lower by the end of the century due to recent policy changes.

Human-wildlife conflict under spotlight
10 March 2021
The Ministry of Environment and Tourism (MET) is intensifying efforts to manage human-wildlife conflict as incidents involving elephants, buffaloes, and other predators persist.
Elephants and buffaloes have caused damage to crops, water infrastructure, and property in primarily the northern regions of the country.
Lions are also reported to continue to attack livestock in the Kunene and Omusati regions, and wild dogs are causing conflict in Salambala conservancy in Zambezi, Kavango East and Otjozondjupa.
Environment minister Pohamba Shifeta said human-wildlife conflict needs to be managed in a way that recognises the rights and developmental needs of local communities and farmers, the need to promote biodiversity conservation, promotes self-reliance, and ensuring that decision-making is quick, efficient, and based on the best available information.
The ministry has started to use helicopters to drive away elephants from human settlements.
It has also begun a process to sell off elephants and is busy negotiating contracts to reduce elephant populations in specific hotspot areas.
Similarly, certain elephants in different herds will be collared to monitor and alert communities and farmers of their movements.
The ministry has created alternative water points for elephants at a distance from villages in the Omatjete area in the Erongo region, and Ehirovipuka in Kunene.
This will also be done the Etosha National Park, and the Omusati, Oshana, and Oshikoto regions this year.
Depending on the availability of funds, this project will be extended to areas around the Khaudum National Park, and in parts of the Kavango West region.
With the Game Product Trust Fund the ministry further plans to support communities and farmers to replace their water tanks, and provide silos as storage of farm produce.
Moreover, certain animals will be relocated and moved to national parks or areas where they cannot cause problems.
Wild dogs in the Salambala conservancy will be captured and moved to Bwabwata National Park.
The ministry has also encouraged communities and farmers to make use of wire with tins, or the use of more traditional methods like drumming to ward off the animals.
Other methods encouraged are the use of chilly pepper fences and chilly bombs, and trenches around crops.
Where necessary, the ministry has opted to kill off specific declared problem causing animals.
Recently three lions in the Omusati region, and two crocodiles in the Zambezi were put down.
In the long term, the ministry is mapping out wildlife corridors in Zambezi, Kunene, Erongo, Omusati, Kavango East and Kavango West to determine the movement areas of wild animals.
It is also developing species management plans to guide the long-term management of species.
