Abstract

Social work operates within a context whereby all aspects of the environment,including social, cultural, natural and physical aspects, affect the health and wellbeing of humans. is holistic understanding of the environment, inclusive of natural aspects,is increasingly being recognised as a result of the effects of the global environmental crisis. Scientific evidence indicates that a worldwide environmental crisis is taking place involving an increase in greenhouse gas emissions, which is causing unprecedented rises in temperature trends and an increase in climate variability (IPCC 2014).
