#ThumaMina: Heed the call, say no to coal DBSA.
We’re calling on the DBSA to commit to not financing Thabametsi coal-fired power plant. It is an opportunity for them to stand out and be a leader amongst financiers in South Africa, and not waiver from fulfilling their development aims of improving affordable energy access for all South Africans.
Together with WWF South Africa we scripted and released a radio drama about the importance of water, the effect climate change is having on water availability, and how people can respond. It was a 4 part series, aired in isiXhosa on Zibonele FM, a community radio station in Cape Town.
On the 11th of December 2018, a group of activists gathered outside the Westin Hotel in Cape Town to call on the Development Bank of Southern Africa (DBSA) to continue their work supporting renewable energy and commit to not fund the Thabametsi coal power plant.
As part of the Zero Emissions/Omissions campaign, the activists asked the African Development Bank for increased transparency in their investment deals and to disclose and share publicly the greenhouse gas emissions at the project and portfolio levels.
