Recently throughout Canada, Canadians have chosen to contribute to the struggle against climate change. With more government funding to places such as Ghana, we have begun the process of lessening the blows due to global warming. Today more and more people from Canada recognize the necessity to contributing to such causes.
Unfortunately, although this we have more support than ever before, we still have many significant issues left to overcome. Even though almost everyone has heard about global warming, people are not in depth educated about its severity and choose to think of it as a hoax/ something that will happen regardless of our efforts. In order to address such opinions, events such as fundraisers and rallies would greatly increase awareness and help educate about why it is crucial that we as Canadians take up the cause.
Another vital step would be getting the locals from these developing countries involved in as much as possible. Its important to recognize that although we are contributing the money to theses countries, these are their homes. In my opinion simply sending outside aid to these countries to run these projects are detrimental to their success. We need to understand that walking into another country, claiming that their lifestyle is wrong and then demanding they change it, is in no means going to solve the problem. Hopefully with the furthering of these projects, we eventually leave them to the locals of that country and move on to the next project.
Although I understand that many of these ideas are incomplete in solving all of our problems with Canada's international aid in other countries, I believe that their implementation will greatly benefit our cause.
