Angola: Fátima Jardim Attends African Environment Ministers Meeting

Doha — The Angolan Environment minister, Fátima Jardim, last Sunday in Doha, Qatar, participated in the meeting of African Ministerial Conference on Environment, in the framework of the search for a common ground in the negotiations relating to climate changes and in the search for financing sources to mitigate global warming.

The African ministers reiterated the need to continue expressing concerns about the negative impact caused by the emission of carbon in the continent and its capacity to achieve the Millennium Development Goals.

The meeting was held on the fringe of the 18th United Nations Conference on Climate Changes (COP-18) and the 8th Conference of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol (CMP-8).

Africa has been dealing with the need to implement an Action Plan for environmental education and training.

The event, which is being attended by about 17,000 people from 200 countries, is scheduled to end on December 07.
