TRUST US TO SECURE TOMORROW

The next ten years in human history will be the most crucial for our survival on this planet. The world is facing a triple environmental crisis, which includes biodiversity loss, climate disruption, and ever-increasing pollution. The proliferation of single-use plastics has contributed significantly to this growing environmental crisis, with millions of tons of plastic waste ending up in our oceans, rivers and landfills yearly.

AN IFP GOVERNMENT WILL:

  • Engage with stakeholders, including workers, unions, communities and businesses to develop policies and strategies that promote a fair and equitable transition to a sustainable future.
  • Protect our wildlife, promote ethical and sustainable tourism, and ensure that future generations can continue to enjoy our biodiversity.
  • Implement policies and practices that reduce human activities negatively impacting the Great African Seaforest and other ocean ecosystems.
  • Support initiatives that promote sustainable fishing practices, marine protected areas, and education and awareness campaigns to increase public understanding of environmental threats.
  • Take remedial action to reduce the use of single-use plastics. We commit to implementing policies and practices that promote sustainable alternatives.
  • Increase law enforcement efforts to crack down on illegal hunting, creating specialist wildlife courts and funding public awareness campaigns.
  • Encourage recycling and proper disposal of plastic waste.
  • End rhino poaching by using a range of measures to combat the illegal trade in rhino horn, including increased law enforcement efforts, harsher penalties for offenders, and increased public awareness campaigns.
