Angola: Mayombe Forest Initiative Officials Reiterate Need for Strategic Plan

Kinshasa — The ministers promoting the Mayombe trans-border initiative (ITM) on Wednesday in Kinshasa, DRC, reiterated the need for signing the strategic plan dubbed "Knowing biodiversity and the impact of climate changes".

The decision was taken in the end of a meeting of Environment ministers of Angola, DRC and Congo Brazzaville, which took place on 12-13 February in Kinshasa.

The delegations of the three central African countries that make up the Mayombe Trans-border Committee (CTM) saluted the adhesion of Gabon to the initiative.

The meeting mandated the regional technical committee, to be made up by two specialists from each country, to propose a Draft-Project aimed at elaborating an appropriate juridical instrument for the CTM, among other recommendations.

The delegations to the meeting were led by the Environment ministers of Angola, Fátima Jardim, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Bavon N'sa Mputu Elima, and Congo Brazzaville, Josué Rodrigue Ngouonimba.

The meeting was also attended by a delegation from Gabon.
