Many efforts have been made by different governments and non-governmental organizations to ensure that the African continent is well protected from natural disasters such as hunger, famines, climate change, environmental degradation, and extinction of resources which if properly conserved could serve even future generations
Yet due to continuous increases in population dynamics, the continent faces tough challenges in escaping the aforementioned problems as myriads of people lack adequate knowledge and information on how to preserve the continent from the above as well as other disasters that might be left out in this article.
However, the future of Africa seems quite bright and secure with the advent of African Media in Agriculture, Climate, Environment, and Tourism which aims to go a long way in ensuring that African populations are well educated and informed on proper Agricultural practices that suits their different environments and climatic conditions so as to combat hunger in the region as well as to disseminate information on proper environmental practices that conserves the environment from damage and wasting as well as the dissemination of information on climatic information such as educating people on the effects of climate change as well as informing people on mitigation measures against climate change and how best to avoid and preserve the environment from phenomenon such as global warming through educating people and teaching them to cease practices that destroys the environment.
Apart from the above, AMACET also endeavors to introduce strategies and measures as well as teaching people on practices that will make the entire African region a marketable and attractive tourist destination where global populations will flock to explore the magnificent beauty of the continent.
AMACET, which is still at its hypodermic stage started as Southern African Media in Agriculture, Environment and Climate Trust before renaming to African Media in Agriculture, Climate, Environment, and Tourism so as to cater to the greater African populations since it is a noble initiative.
Founded by Mr. Josiah Dimbo, a Zimbabwean National, the organization strives to go a long way as the main media in the dissemination of news on Agriculture, Climate, Environment as well as tourism in the entire African continent as well as to introduce several programs in different countries that are meant to enlighten African populations harnessing different media channels such as newspapers, magazines, radio stations, Television channels, Social Media platforms, banners, memorandum, regional schools quiz shows, roadshows and any other channels that might be effective in spreading the news across the African continent.
The organization is made up of different professionals such as professors, doctors and other academics who were selected from different African countries for their special expertise in different areas such as research and a wide range of experiences and the organization looks up to go a long way in becoming a major force to reckon with in the African continent.
Among the many objectives of AMACET are to promote agro-tourism in Africa, to encourage usage of ICTs in Agricultural, Environmental, tourism development, and Climate change management, to promote smart and better agricultural practical practices so as to increase food production, to increase export-led initiatives in Agriculture, to encourage value addition in produce so as to maximize on production, to raise awareness in matters related to smart organic agriculture, climate change, environmental management and Tourism development in schools, to establish call centers, eco-schools, magazines and demonstration farms, to promote and encourage inter-tourism among African countries, to promote and encourage youth and women participation and venturing into Agriculture and taking it as a profitable business, to lobby and advocate for better policies in agricultural, environmental and Tourism development and Climate change management, to establish green belts, highways, and eco-schools, to promote regenerative agriculture so as to preserve soil and mother earth as well as several other objectives.
AMACET looks up to become a very successful initiative and in this endeavor, it has partnered other regional and international partners in Agricultural, Environment, Climate and Tourism education, chief among which Is Hanell International, with which it has signed a memorandum of understanding to partner it in the great work of disseminating information and enlightenment of populations on how to best sustain their livelihoods and adopt good agricultural practices as well as sustain and conserve their environments.
