South Africa and the Environment

The legacy of South Africa's brutal past has left many victims, not the least of which has been the country's rich heritage of environmental resources. In this Common Ground, Chris Albertyn, founder of Earthlife Africa; Jacklyn Cock, professor of sociology at the University of Witwatersrand; and Trevor Pillay, member of the Merewent Ratepayers Association, discuss the serious environmental issues that face the new South Africa.
