What you need to know, currently.
We have a story up today from Currently’s Anna Abraham on apartheid’s lingering effects on the climate crisis in present-day South Africa.
“In present-day South Africa, the richest 20 percent control 70 percent of the country’s resources. Despite making up a meager 7.7 percent of the population, white people own a huge chunk of the most productive farmland. And this racial segregation, as established by apartheid, is still alive and well in South Africa, playing a big role in determining who can access economic opportunities. This also makes poor Black and colored communities more vulnerable to climate disasters.”
