Having experienced since 1987 six of the warmest years on record, with droughts in ten total harvest seasons, climate change is already presenting devastating consequences. Ms Mutsa Chasi of the country’s Environmental Management Agency said, "With predictions that agricultural productivity in Zimbabwe could decrease by up to 30 percent because of increases in climatic extremes, climate change poses one of the most serious food security challenges of the 21st century in the country."

Ms. Chasi, our gratitude for your forthright assessment of the challenges facing Zimbabwe due to global warming. We pray that the Zimbabwean people receive ample nourishment as we strive to restore the balance of our vital ecosphere.
