Gender-based violence and sexual assault in South Africa is a widespread dilemma that leaves many women, children and other vulnerable people traumatized and helpless. In response, Thuthuzela Care Centers (TCCs) work with survivors and providers alike to tackle this epidemic.
South Africa has a rapidly growing economy that is highly dependent on fossil fuels. As the economic status of individuals improves, the demand on already strained energy production and associated greenhouse gas emissions is expected to increase dramatically. The USG aims to assist the Government of South Africa to move towards achievement of the ambitious emissions reduction targets it announced in November 2011 in the National Climate Change Response White Paper.
