MINISTRY OF ENVIRONMENT AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT – REPUBLIC OF SENEGAL – : INTEGRATING ENVIRONMENT AND DEVELOPING POLICIES TO PROMOTE GREEN GROWTH.

INCLUSIVE GREEN GROWTH IS A CROSS-CUTTING PRIORITY OF THE REPUBLIC OF SENEGAL STRATEGY ON DEVELOPMENT.

DEVELOPING INNOVATIVE AND SUSTAINABLE SOURCES OF GROWTH IS A MAIN CONCERN TO ITS MINISTRY OF ENVIRONMENT AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT.

 

ACHIEVING SUSTAINABLE GROWTH REQUIRES PROTECTING THE ENVIRONMENT AND CONSERVING NATURAL RESOURCES WHILE ENCOURAGING THE INVESTMENT AND INNOVATION THAT WILL GIVE RISE TO NEW OPPORTUNITIES.

THE REPUBLIC OF SENEGAL IS VERY ACTIVE IN DEVELOPMENT A SECTOR WHERE DONORS CAN PLAY AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN SUPPORTING GREEN DEVELOPMENT AND TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATIONS TO TACKLE LOCAL AND GLOBAL ENVIRONMENTAL CHALLENGES.

Mr. MOR NGOM  – MINISTER – MINISTRY OF ENVIRONMENT AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT  - REPUBLIC OF SENEGAL - INDICATED IN AN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW IN DAKAR THAT INCREASING THE ECONOMIC , ENVIRONMENTAL AND SOCIAL SUSTAINABILITY OF GROWTH REQUIRES A DEEP CULTURAL SHIFT TOWARDS « GREENER CONSUMPTION ».

THIS MEANS TAKING ACCOUNT OF THE NEED TO PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT AND CONSERVE NATURAL RESOURCES WHILE ENCOURAGING THE INVESTMENT AND INNOVATION THAT WILL GIVE RISE TO NEW ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITIES.

« INNOVATION IS VITAL FOR ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT BUT INNOVATION IS NOT JUST ABOUT HIGH – TECHNOLOGY  PRODUCTS. IT IS ALSO ABOUT EDUCATION AND FAVOURABLE ECONOMIC AND REGULATORY CONDITIONS. WITH MANY DEVELOPING COUNTRIES UNDERGOING RAPID URBANISATION, INVESTING NOW IN LOW – CARBON, CLIMATE – RESILIENT INFRASTRUCTURE IS CRITICAL TO AVOID GREATER RENOVATION COSTS AT A LATER DATE. POTENTIAL SYNERGIES BETWEEN ENVIRONMENTAL AND ECONOMIC POLICIES ARE PARTICULARLY STRONG AT THE URBAN LEVEL IN TRANSPORTATION, BUILDING AND ENERGY » SAYS Mr. NGOM.

WE AT WWW.CONVERSATIONPRIVEE.COM / WWW.OFF-THE-RECORDMESSAGING.COM STRONGLY BELIEVE THAT IN LOW -I NCOME COUNTRIES LIKE SENEGAL , THAT DEPEND HEAVILY ON NATURAL RESOURCES AND ARE VULNERABLE TO CLIMATE CHANGE, GREEN GROWTH CAN HAVE A REAL IMPACT IN REDUCING POVERTY. WE ALSO SUPPORT THE IDEA THAT STRATEGIES THAT INTEGRATE CLIMATE CHANGE AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT GOALS CAN BE AN IMPORTANT PART OF BROADER GREEN GROWTH STRATEGIES.
