1:04 pm
some major roads of flooded or broken apart fields, already, se overflowing dams could still bust, threatening more homes and forcing residents to stay clear of the area. while the weather has cleared in some areas, more rain is expected. let's go home to cross over to judah. daily. she's in via paul some one of the towns badly hit as we can see that behind you by that those floods tell us what's the latest way you on and we've seen a lot of movement. a lot of people coming into town, both residents that have to leave their homes because there's no electricity, no water, a lot of the ground floor apartments are completely flooded and they've all come here and congregated to try to start cleaning up the town. there's tractors and excavators, and people digging and sweeping with even with their hands sometimes to try to get
1:05 pm
rid of all the debris and but here the water has gone down. but we've seen that north from here, closer to cologne in a town called f stopped. there have been collapses of houses and there's it's been linked to a sink hole. probably forming houses have collapse. people have been stuck in the rubble and some have died in the situation. there is still ongoing and very dramatic. stuck in the rubble. you just said that reports of more than a 1000 people still unaccounted for in the region. is that it hasn't been any progress on locating these people. now we've heard this news yesterday from the authorities here in the region where i am currently and we have not have any update as of yet. authorities. we're hoping that the accounted for were unreachable because the internet and phone connection is so bad. here at the moment,
1:06 pm
and they're hoping that they will be able to get in touch with these people eventually. but authorities do fear that there will be more dead in the coming hours and days to the you on the you on the ground. you have spoken to people badly affected by these floods and we can, we can see how the homes are damaged. they're behind you. what's the spirit that is it more now that people are rolling up as lead signed to clean up for people still shall soften, devastated. it's a mix of both. i've spoken to people who told me they still have a hard time believing that this is really happened and to realize that this is the reality now on the ground. but on the other hand, we see, and we spoke to a lot of people who say it's now time to get down to business and try to do what they can to clean up their town. and they are very determined to do that. so we, we do have different approaches here and it's understandable in the situation that was so shocking reporter, julia sound daily,
1:07 pm
that reporting from bud paul san. thank you, julia are the thoughts in germany? i've also overshadowed johnson angle america farewell visit to the united states. she will leave office in september talks with president biden celebrated the transatlantic alliance, but there was disagreement as well. the security threats from china and russia, for example, unlike his predecessor president joe biden treated mattel as a friend rather than full. it's been a long time since the german chancellor received a welcome. this warm in washington merkel back into the white house for she's available of us. many times. she had a great friend consider a personal friend, as well as my great friends united states. and after the 10 diplomatic relationship with the former president trump,

for president joe biden and chancellor angler, michael stressed, the friendship between that 2 countries we will stand up for democratic principles and universal rights when we see china or any other country working to undermine free and open societies, we stand together and will continue to stand together to defend our eastern flight allies at nato, against russian aggression. but germany and the u. s. do not agree on how to deal with either russia or china. the plan gigantic north stream to pipeline will bring russian natural gas into europe. washington says the project makes the continent more dependent on russia and threatened the security of it's small and neighbors, like ukraine. merkel has long championed the project but played down the differences. now, looks like we talked about russia and ukraine and in this context also about node
1:09 pm
stream to we've come to different assessments as to what this project entails. but let me say clearly, our idea is and remains that ukraine remains a transit country for natural gas. ukraine, like any other country, has a right to territorial sovereignty. the chancellor farewell tour of washington began with a breakfast with vice president carmella harris. i am later the johns hopkins university bestowed an honorary degree on the form a physicist. the other medical time of german chancellor may be drawing to a close, but she has left a lasting impression on the us precedent. and if they meet on a personal note, i must tell you,

innovative bumble houses in the area and plenty of other interesting stories. the one here, how months this is hope in the fall, months input output take the life will also see the house of african land on it can get a tough break, vibrate this in the environment and find out why you've done and foremost we thought we show in the democratic republic of congo, i country often modern conflict as a result for a long time, little attention has been to the environment. but that is starting to change. we went to a jose vega, national park, where people i know devoting time and effort to protecting the nature. bear not only is the good for the tropical forest, but the local people and the waitlist to which include guerrillas, the
1:32 pm
this family of gorillas lives in a tropical forest. they don't get nervous when people are nearby. so not interested, but you know, we are now in co who's the be a good national park. and right now we're in the presence of miss you bone, monsieur. bon, any members of this family next weekend to be who's a, be a good national park is a national conservation area, democratic republic of congo. the growl as all eastern lowland guerrillas having a major choice attraction for decades. the main source of income for the park are the admission fees for in visitors pay $400.00 us dollars each because of the pandemic. there's no visitors right now, but the ranges still go out on patrol. they want to keep track of several gorilla
1:33 pm
truce. and usually know where to find them. even though the pump is huge, it covers 6000 square kilometers. so vs device for each family of gorillas on point one to the far as to check on them. we also collect data. and if we find chimpanzee tracks, we record that to see if we find evidence of illegal activities such as tramps and we dismantle them and no record. and i said that you're probably going to the data is being used for scientific research. the number of low land guerrillas here has declined by hoff over the past 3 decades. so just a few 1000 researches estimates the ranges with common colleges, agustin possible, see he has promised expertise, a non profit, dedicated diploma research and conservation. he says poachers and their traps on
1:34 pm
a continuing threat. this guerrilla is lucky to be alive. here we see the silver back mcgrew about when he was 4 years old. he was caught in a snare, and unfortunately he lost his right hand. but despite that hearing is and he's with his family, my good. the ranges not only patrol the park to collect data, but they're also on the look out for poachers. that's why they aren't going to say that we have security issues in some parts of the part there are poachers out there every day. and the rangers tried to track them down. people from the surrounding communities also sometimes damage the park. they cut down trees or bamboo. what you'll find in the park is the unesco world heritage site. but this part of the eastern d. c is densely populated,
1:35 pm
and there's no buffer zone between the park avenue by villages. people live or the be the facility, some work and plantations or in the park, but most are small hold farmers. premise expertise is not only seeks to ensure conservation of the guerrillas, but also to improve the livelihood of local communities. it is also launched a project to replant areas of forest that have been cleared illegally, almost impossible. se says, working closely with local people, it's very important. he hopes they will come to cancel the environment as much as they respect will group will go to the plan system. so for some time now look at who has been seen much more often at the edge of the park. consider what pleases us as scientists, conservationist is that the communities respect mean got ok. usually, like nobody has been throwing stones at him or threatening him,
1:36 pm
even though we often see him passing from their field at around 100 villages opposite basing and the reforestation projects. a project that will help preserve the floors for the good of the guerrillas. and the local population let us know upon from preserving wave life on the forest to creating good, sustainable housing. africa was big cities are crowded, some overcrowded in a weekly series, doing your beat. we meet on a jury and entropy. new inc. i do know who built houses for material phones in abundance. the nigerian population is rapidly growing. and with the need for affordable housing. deborah, him, lisa came up with the idea. he construct houses and made
1:37 pm
entirely a bamboo which grows naturally in the area. like this last longer than a house built with ordinary wood bamboo is better when it comes to withstand clubs and erosion. and you and your family can live in a house like this for a very long time without having to worry that is my last and then when them and then boom, which is actually a woody grass, is strong, light and environmentally friendly. that grows incredibly quickly without having to be planted after harvest is much cheaper than most other construction materials. but it should be treated or leached to eliminate the ability to insect attacks and whether where not all bamboo varieties have the same quality. but it's a suitable variety is used for him still says a sizable house can be built in less than 20 days. and how about you?
1:38 pm
if you are also doing your best, tell us about it, visit our website, or send us a tweak hash tag doing your bit. we share your story, who's a know to one of the one key environmental trouble makers, slattich every year or on the point 25000000 pounds the read ends up in ocean. that's a truckload every single minutes you for plastic consumption continues to live up to the present rate will be discarding. so truckloads, minutes within the next 10 years and 4 percent by 2050. why is this happening? one reason is that only a small proportion of plastic with this recycled another is that around half of all, plus the goes the product that i use just once. and then through the weight. now
1:39 pm
some young german activist cleaning up local rivers and working with scientists to calculate how much a plastic and stop in to see an idyllic location on the who river in west in germany. but take a closer look. and it's not as beautiful kevin noah and the exhaust nights have come to do some fishing, but not the usual kind. it's trash. they're fishing for plays, litter everywhere. they look. and there's plenty of plastic last because quite a few glass bottles to the students attend to local high school and taking part in an initiative called plastic pirates. it's a research project where young students get to do the work of real scientists. they take water samples and measure count and recall the pieces of trash. they recovered from the rivers and rather than scientists in queue use the data to generate
1:40 pm
a garbage map of german rivers and calculate how much trash ends up in the sea. the teachers are happy to do they pause to inspire the budding scientists. yeah. it's something i care about myself. it always bothers me when i see people leaving rubbish behind, especially when they have small children with them and are supposed to be setting an example. the work of the plastic pirates shows that on average, one piece of trash can be found for every 2 square meters of river bank in germany . france also has a project aimed at tracking down the trench. it's called plastic origins and goes a step further using artificial intelligence. and we want to move as much as grown kids and citizens, as we can to go on the reverse. so you can create, they've got actually getting, what can you read a bank?
1:41 pm
and you think those data using the video to take the advantage of the real bank, we will be able to analyze video detect liter items and use the data to map prevail, plastic pollution. the aim of plastic origins is to get strict legislation introduced on plastic waste and regulatory limits for the amount of plastic in european rivers. vacovich map is intended to identify especially polluted areas. we, we know that most of the pollution we find in the ocean is transported by a rigorous right now we don't know which read us the most probably did the pretty one. but the app contract micro plastics in germany and own full kilos of micro plastics per person per year end up in the environment. the main sources particles from vehicle ties,
1:42 pm
industrial waste and household garbage. it's difficult for waste water treatment plans to filter out the tiny particles, but munich stones have called echo fauria is showing how it can be done using a simple but effective method. this is how it works. the waste water is pumped into the filter. a powerful vertex is generated in the pipe, putting the water containing most of the micro plastics to the top. the company says 95 percent of micro plastics for municipalities and industry could be filtered out in this way. the young plastic pirates agree that more needs to be done to combat plastic solution. after just 2 hours in this idyllic location, they found more trash than they can even carry. now we had to south africa to find out how the tax break helps to promote conservation. the country is famous for its wide life and vast areas of almost on pause to land. and then g o there come up
1:43 pm
with a way to encourage people to set up your reserves on the property. 88 percent of land in south africa is not suitable for agriculture. it's too rugged to dry and chew uneven. but everywhere you look, you see life in abundance. the country boasts rich biodiversity. but how best to preserve it in south africa, environmental protection is chronically under financed. me. that's where kansas stevens comes in. she's attack specialists that the n g o wilderness foundation, africa. she wants to encourage landowners to turn their holdings into nature reserves. the government offers a tax incentive to do so. i don't think i'm going size.
1:44 pm
what you're doing here is looking off to some african natural wealth in the public . good. and so there is this unique tax incentive to benefit that by diversity. this man is already converted his land into a protected area. he can right off the cost of the purchase over 25 year period photographer, cause funder lender purchase the land 5 years ago. and has taken countless pictures of the area since then. it rarely rains here, but when it does, the landscape is transformed into a pageant of color. another special feature about this area of land is that it could act as a corridor for wild animals since it's located between 2 different protected areas . we standing year round about in the on the northern border of it get to the, to the waste and east south stretching down to cut them that quote, national park. and then to the north east hookup provincial nature. and you know,
1:45 pm
you can see the proposed colorado linking the to protected davis. the crew region of south africa is home to more than 5000 species of plants. and some 40 percent of them can only be found here. once upon a time, this area was farmland due to global warming and the rifle diminished quite a bit and it just became impossible for these people to, to make a living with kettle and agriculture and eventually there to sell. and that's why we bought into folks for conservation with climate change, threatening biodiversity, candice. stevens has not found it difficult to persuade other landowners to follow suit doesn't have signed up to the scheme. her 1st experience of import.
