NGOs will soon have the data capability that allows them to anticipate the climate changes taking place. The Group on Earth Observation is a global organisation that will allow data, collected by satellite, to be shared throughout the world.

Another new initiative called the Applied Centre for Climate and Earth Systems Science, supported by the Department of Science and Technology, will ensure that South Africa
becomes more able at generating knowledge on climate change matters.

Department of Science and Technology, Minister Naledi Pandor explained that the department would be investing in young scientists because they are important and remain the key to the future.

Minister Naledi Pandor added that it's not only about developing the technology but also about the required human resources who will carry out the studies that will give solutions to the future.
