Mozambique Participates in International Conference on Human Environment

The Stockholm +50 International Conference was opened this Thursday, June 2, under the leadership of the United Nations Secretary-General, António Guterres. This event marks 50 years since the United Nations Conference on the Human Environment, held in 1972, whose milestone was the signing of the Stockholm Declaration and Action Plan for the Human Environment.

The Conference, under the motto “A Healthy Planet for the Prosperity of All, Our Responsibility, Our Opportunity,” aims to accelerate the implementation of commitments by Governments and the international community, particularly in fulfilling the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development, including a sustainable recovery from the covid-19 pandemic.

The Mozambican delegation is headed by the Minister of Land and Environment, Ivete Maibaze, and includes the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Mozambique in the Kingdom of Sweden, Florêncio Joel Sele, staff from the Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, Land and Environment, Economy and Finance, and Mineral Resources and Energy.

The country’s participation in the event was preceded by national consultation meetings last May for reflection on the challenges of environmental sustainability and collection of concrete contributions for a more integrated and cross-cutting future action in favor of the environment and restoration of nature.

In Stockholm, the Minister will participate in the four plenary sessions scheduled, and in the first, she will speak on behalf of the Government of Mozambique on environmental issues that mark the national and international agenda.

In her speech, Ivete Maibaze will highlight the actions undertaken by the country and that contribute to the protection of the environment. But she will also talk about the results of the national consultation meetings that include proposals for urgent actions to be developed to achieve the agenda of environmental sustainability and creation of resilience to extreme events associated with climate change.

The leader will also participate in the high-level side event aimed at discussing issues to accelerate policy changes and investments for an inclusive, green and systemic socio-economic transformation that creates new paths of sustainable development and ensures prosperity for all within planetary boundaries.

Also in Stockholm, bilateral meetings are planned, with emphasis on the meeting with the Swedish Minister of International Cooperation and Development, Matilda Ernkrans, in the framework of cooperation between the two countries on issues related to forests, conservation areas and climate resilience.
