Rabat 03.17.2017

The Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, Mr. Salaheddine Mezouar, held talks, Thursday 16 March 2017 in Rabat, with the Nigerien Minister of the Environment of Sustainable Development, Mr. Garba Almoustapha.

The meeting was an opportunity to discuss the implementation of the decisions taken by the two Heads of State at the African Action Summit, held in Marrakech last November on the sidelines of the COP22, during which African leaders decided to implement "bold" actions for an "emerging" and "resilient" Africa.

In this regard, Mr. Mezouar stressed the need to find adequate solutions to accompany all projects in the Sahel region, in accordance with the orientations of His Majesty King Mohammed VI.

Furthermore, Mr. Mezouar emphasized the need to complete, by June, the steps leading up to the mobilization of the necessary funding for the various projects and programs conceived within the framework of the fight against global warming in the Sahel region.

Mr. Mezouar also pointed out that this region is suffering from the effects of climate change and that Lake Chad has experienced a severe deterioration, endangering the lives of more than 30 million inhabitants.

Mr. Garbaa stated that he was pleased with the commitments reiterated by Mr. Mezouar during these talks, which reflects the determination of His Majesty the King to carry out all these initiatives for the good of the African peoples.

The Nigerian minister also stressed the need for a substantial mobilization of resources to implement the different programs required for an Africa that is resilient to climate change, as desired by the Heads of State.
