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

Statement by His Excellency Mr. Bogdan Aurescu, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Romania


During the Decade of Action for the SDGs, we must also work together to protect our planet and ecosystems. We need to resort to a rational use of planetary resources when pursuing economic growth, in full respect for biodiversity. The Biodiversity Summit offers a unique opportunity to show ambition and accelerate action on biodiversity for sustainable development.
Firm action is also needed in order to tackle the climate and environmental emergencies. From rising sea levels to catastrophic weather events, we can no longer afford to ignore the risks of climate change. We all have a duty to the future generations to turn Glasgow COP26 into a success and to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement.

We contribute to consolidating the institutional capacity of health systems, ensuring food security and sustainable water management, as well as countering fake news in the COVID-19 context.
