Humanity generates nearly two billion tons of solid wastes annually.CADEF is Combating solid waste, Marine Plastic Litter as part of youth in action clean Campaign along the West Coast of Cameroon. Our youths in action campaigne, brings together youths from variouscommunities yearly to show concern to their community through a clean up campaign,combating solide waste, marine plastice along the coastal village communities and in the urban cities.
According to the inter governmental panel on climate change, halting deforestation and restoring forests while adopting more forest friendly agriculture, and management practices would prevent the emission of billions of tons of carbon dioxide over the next 20 years.
Reducing greenhouse gas(GHG) emissions and stabilizing atmospheric concentration at 250-450 parts per million carbon dioxide equivalent(ppm C02) is essential. The current GHG level is approximately 390ppm C02.Scientist have estimated that lowering concentrations to 350ppm may enable us to avert tipping points of ocean acidification and melting of permafrost and arctic ice. Stabilization at 450ppm is assumed to be the threshold to avoid dangerous warming of more than 2 degrees Celsius ,which will bring potentially catastrophic impacts for natural and human communities including changing weather patterns impacting food production and species migration. Drought,desertification and flooding may increasingly threaten our coastal communities.
CADEF and partners, as well as local community memeber (expecially the youths) together have put hands with commitment to fight agaist marine plastic littering and solid waste in our environment. By accepting responsibility, we take effective steps toward our goal: an inclusive human society on a habitable planet, a society that works for all humans and for all nonhumans. By accepting responsibility, we move closer to creating a world that works for all."
