CENTRE for Environment Justice (CEJ) has called for the implementation of the Environmental Sustainability commitments made by Government in the 2022 national budget speech.
CEJ Executive Director Maggie Mwape said the 2022 national budget speech stated that Government had made its aspirations clear on environmental sustainability.
Ms Mwape said the speech focused on climate change adaptation and mitigation, natural resources management and early warning systems.
She said the new dawn administration had made commitments to promote innovative financing for climate change interventions such as Green Bonds, carbon trading and putting in place legislation to establish a National Climate Change Fund.
“We therefore urge the Ministry of Green Economy and Environment to commence the process for establishing the Climate Change fund, including a clear definition of the proposed governance frame for the fund.”
