The Summit on Biodiversity, as part of the UN’s high-level week, was convened by the President of the General Assembly yesterday morning. Union Minister for Natural Resources and Environmental Conservation U Ohn Win made a video-recorded statement to the Summit.
He discussed the rapid degradation of ecosystems, biodiversities and related species, causing the loss of ecosystem services and experiencing climate changes and natural disasters. The Union Minister talked about adopting the post-2020 global biodiversity framework to put the nature on a path to recovery by 2030 to realize the Vision of ‘Living in Harmony with Nature’.
Myanmar is putting emphasis on nature-based solutions to stop extinction of biodiversity and to ensure sustainable development as these solutions are low-costs and support to socio-economic profits. The Union Minister added that forest conservation and rehabilitation of ecosystem are included in the prioritized sectors of the country, with spending US$500 million for the 10-year reforestation project, while implementing the 10-year rehabilitation of wild-life habitats.
He continued to say the works on rehabilitation, conservation and management on biodiversities with the participation of local ethnic people. Heads of State and Government and other leaders also made their video-recorded statements to the Summit which was first held under the UN General Assembly.—MNA (Translated by Aung Khin)
