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

Statement by His Excellency Mr. Borut Pahor, President of the Republic of Slovenia

 

Slovenia shares the awareness of biodiversity loss as an urgent global challenge.

We put the right to clean drinking water in our constitution. We recognize preservation of water resources as a key element to protect biodiversity.

My personal advocacy to environmental protection is both global and local, based on introducing public debates on climate change, establishing committee for climate policy and supporting youth movements.

I would like to reaffirm Slovenia's and my personal commitment to stop an unprecedented rate of biodiversity loss and halt climate change effects.

This is why I join the "Leaders Pledge for Nature".
