Climate change goes between the sheets 
More efforts in the fields and less in the bedroom, is the message from a proposal by SADC responding to the poor forecasts for resources in the region.
Within 34 years or by 2050, the region’s member states could be enforcing a policy that families should be limited to four people, typically, parents and two children. By then, the generations where families would number up to 12 or more and include several wives, mistresses and their children, would be a thing of the past, if regional leaders have it their way.
As the region grapples with the effects of climate change and the intensification of its impact as the years progress, more radical ideas are coming forward.
