Once again, the role of nature for development is raised. Africa's post-Covid-19 recovery can only be achieved through the environment.
Having attended the AMCEN, Alice Ruhweza, WWF's Africa Regional Director argues that a green and fair recovery for Africa that puts nature at its heart is the only viable option to put nature on the road to recovery, restore livelihoods and build resilience to climate change and biodiversity loss. "The ripple effect will protect our continent from global economic shocks and future pandemics," she says. Moreover, this is particularly relevant for Madagascar because "we are facing 3 struggles at the same time: the fight against poverty, biodiversity loss and climate change" according to the Minister of Environment and Sustainable Development in her report after her participation in the World Conservation Congress of IUCN.
To support this green revival, an online platform of the African Green Stimulus Programme has been launched. The program is to provide a general framework for the various initiatives for sustainable development in Africa. This online platform of the program will allow the different actors to exchange and access the different useful information in order to find joint answers for development.
In this common and multilateral approach, the ministers representing African countries have formulated a common regional position for all of Africa for the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (COP 15) and the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP 26) scheduled for next October.
