SDG 6 Reference — General Debate 75th Session of the United Nations General Assembly

Statement by His Excellency Mr. Filipe Jacinto Nyusi, President of the Republic of Mozambique

 

With regard to climate change, due to its geographical location, Mozambique has been cyclically affected by extreme events. Every year, the country has suffered cyclones, floods and droughts and memories of Cyclones Idai and Kenneth in March and April 2019 are still fresh.

...

We take this opportunity to reiterate our gratitude to the international community for the support provided during and after the cyclones.

Mozambique continues to promote sustainable management of biodiversity and ecosystems and natural resources, with the purpose of adding value to the integrated local development of communities. In this regard, the promotion of conservation areas, in national territory, continues to deserve our special attention.
