This week we bring you the third podcast in this series in which we hear a conversation between Mr John McGeady, former Justice Officer for the Sisters of Our Lady of Apostles, Mr Gerry Forde, Justice Officer for the Society of African Missions and two OLA Sisters based in different parts of Ghana. They are Sr. Dora Sara Wilberforce OLA and Sr. Dorcas Obeng OLA. Together, they shed light on the many challenges facing the country due to climate change.
In this episode, we hear about the stark transformations occurring in the natural environment. Beyond that, we learn about the heartbreaking consequences, such as the economic hardships driving women and girls into prostitution when crops fail. Other knock-on effects of climate change are urbanization, inflation and the far-reaching effects on crucial resources like energy, water, and food supply. Education, a cornerstone of progress, is also fundamentally affected by these challenges.
