Sustainable development is part of the country’s socio-economic development strategy of 2011 to 2020 and it was also included into the country’s socio-economic development plans during the 2006-2010 and 2011-2015 periods.
In order to reach the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) on ensuring environmental sustainability by 2015, the UNDP has encouraged the country to continue to prioritise clean water, environmental sanitation, climate change, and biodiversity preservation.
Localities have been urged to mobilise the community and their authorities’ involvement in ensuring the sustainability of water and environmental services.
Attention should be paid to protecting the living environment and biodiversity conservation. Relevant agencies should put forth prioritised policies to encourage the private sector’s participation in environmental protection, said UNDP.
