Emerging actors, such as providers of South–South cooperation (SSC), are increasingly playing a role in peacebuilding, particularly in fragile states and conflict-affected areas. While there is much discussion on the role of emerging donors in sustainable development, there is little empirical evidence on their contribution to peacebuilding and state building.

Renewable energy technologies have experienced an exponential growth in South Africa, thanks to the procurement of large-scale power plants. However, South Africa’s electricity sector still lacks a level playing field.

In the arid and semi-arid areas of Africa, some of the most common land uses remain in pastoralism or in some cases commercial livestock ranching. Agricultural activities in these areas especially beef production is known to be highly vulnerable to the severe e¤ects of climate change. However, a major limitation is that appropriate adaptation and mitigation options are few.
The impact of climate change disasters poses significant challenges for South Africa especially for vulnerable rural households. In South Africa there is dearth of knowledge of the impacts of climate change at the local level, especially in rural areas. Rural households are generally poor and lack resources to adapt and mitigate the impacts of climate change associated disasters.
