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

Statement by His Excellency Dr. Julius Maada Bio, President of the Republic of Sierra Leone

 

We have increased investments in purposeful infrastructure that will generate economic productivity and improve standards of living. We are constructing and resurfacing more roads, expanding access to carbon-neutral energy in off-grid and other locations, extending ICT penetration, and improving access to potable water and sanitation facilities.  
 
We have launched mitigation and protection strategies to forestall the adverse effects of climate change especially on our vulnerable populations. We urge more international cooperation and the urgent implementation of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change.
