The 2024 Budget; a Spark of Economic Hope

The Green Connection's advocacy officer, Lisa Makaula, has expressed her hopes and expectations for Finance Minister Enoch Godongwana ahead of tomorrow's budget speech. Makaula, a well-known voice in support of green initiatives, is hopeful that this year's budget will address urgent environmental issues and offer a glimmer of hope for the struggling economy. Makaula highlights how critical it is that the Finance Minister give sustainable investments and projects top priority in order to promote both environmental preservation and economic prosperity. She believes that rerouting money to support renewable energy sources—like solar and wind power—can boost the economy, generate jobs, and lessen our carbon footprint all at once. INSERT [LISA MK]
