Honorable Chair and Fellow Delegates, South Africa has a big issue in obesity. From age 20 ~ 70, 16% of these people in our country are obesity. And years after years, the number of obesity started to increase. People called us South Africans among world's over weight people. Seriously, death is the final result of obesity. Nowadays, the number of death rate from obesity are on the rise. South Africa haven’t taken any action yet. But we will. We need time for this. Many country insist that we must take action. We agree. But It just need time. We are working on it. We should learn from other country. Other country let people who brought junk food to pay junk food tax. Country like America tell people how dangerous the obesity is. In 2012, there is a TV program on HBO called “The weight of the nation”. American people use this program to tell the people how dangerous the obesity is and how to prevent it. I think this is a good way. We think we should reduce the amount of junk food and fast food , they are the main reason that people get obesity. We must limit the amount of these kind of restaurants And we must tell people how dangerous the obesity is. We would like to decrease the percentage of people who is obesity.
Honorable Chair and Follow delegates. The pollution has been a major issue to our country for a decade. We got a serious water pollution. It can cause many problems for our country. The dirty water seeped through the underground water table and some of the dirty water sprayed over crops. Even some polluted water went into our underground water system. The polluted water can become a life threatening. But we have taken action in the issue.We have the water treatment plants. These plants can help us to get rid of the dirty things in the water. This is really helpful to our country. Many of our allies use the same kind of method to get clean water, our biggest ally China has a good method to get rid of the water pollution issue. China has Septic Tanks which can separate the solids from liquids. So the dirty particles will be separate from clean water. We learned a lot of things from other countries and we hope everybody in this world can clean water. We want the owners of the factories to have the awareness to protect the environment.
