💔Africa has a MAJOR Cabro / impervious paving problem and it is causing all sorts of #ClimateAdaptation, #WaterPollution, #WaterScarcity, #UrbanFlooding and #drainage problems.

The 'Nouvea Riche' and contractors in Kenya, Nigeria and Ghana are especially notorious for this! ImageImageImageImage
Someone, somewhere lied to us that never seeing soil is the ultimate sophistication.

Now everyone has covered everything in hideous cabro and plastic turf 😭

Impervious surfaces like Cabro do not allow water to seep into the ground.

And that causes SEVERAL issues:
1. Water scarcity.
Cabro makes water flow fast into drains.
When water does not seep into the ground, it means that natural groundwater is not recharged.

The water we use, our rivers, boreholes, wells, depend on rainfall slowly seeping into the soil for recharge.

اسراف وہ چیز ہے جس کو اللہ تعالیٰ نے سخت نا پسند فرمایا کسی بھی چیز کے استعمال میں اسراف کی ہرگز اجازت نہیں خاص طور پر پانی کے استعمال میں اسراف سے روکنے کے لیے #خاتم_النبیین_محمّدﷺّ نے وضو جو کہ پاکیزگی اختیار کرنے کے لیے ہے اس میں بھی اسراف کی اجازت نہیں دی Image
پانی اللہ تعالیٰ کی خاس نعمت ہے زندگی کی علامت ہے تمام انسانوں کو بالخصوص اس امر پر توجہ دینے کی ضرورت ہے کہ پانی کا استعمال ضرورت سے زیادہ نہ کیا جاءے قانون سے یہ معاملہ سنبھلنے والا لیں اس کے لیے ہمیں اخلاقی تربیت کی ضرورت ہے۔
اس کے لیے سکولوں کالجوں میں ورکشاپز کا انتظام ہونا چاہیے۔ میڈیا پر ایک مسلسل کیمپین جلانے کی ضرورت ہے۔ تاکہ لوگوں کے دلوں میں یہ بات بیٹھ جاءے کہ اگر پانی کا ضرورت سے زیادہ استعمال نہ روکا گیا تو اللہ تعالیٰ نافرمانی کی وجہ سے اس نعمت کا بحران پیدا کر دیں گے۔

By 2029, droughts won't last for weeks or months anymore.

They'll last for years.
Droughts, particularly in the Global South, will last anywhere from 6 months to 5 whole years.


We must put a stop to imperial attitudes of Global North governments.
2°C - 3°C is possible by the end of the 2020s.

That's terrifying.
