Khan: Nothing in the budget for climate change?


    Where’s the spending to deal with climate change?

    That’s the question from President of the Trinidad and Tobago Farmers Union Shiraz Khan, speaking at an OWTU forum on Tuesday.

    He says with recent strange weather patterns and flooding taking place in non-traditional areas of T&T, measures related to climate change needs to be implemented.

    Mr. Khan says farmers are those witnessing firsthand the climate issues, and he is lamenting the Finance Minister’s lack of mention in the budget.
