Zanzibar economy suffering effects of climate change
The development of the Indian Ocean archipelago of Zanzibar is being held back by the effects of climate change, according to a senior minister on the island.
Agriculture, fishing and tourism are all being negatively impacted as sea-levels and temperatures rise.
Zanzibar says it doesn’t have the resources to counter the effects of climate change.
It’s brought a delegation to a conference on small island developing states or SIDS currently being held in Samoa, in the Pacific Ocean, in order to build partnerships and get recognized itself as a small island nation.
Daniel Dickinson asked Fatma Fereji, Minister in the First Vice President's Office of Zanzibar, to explain the affects of climate change.
