Zambia signs Glasgow declaration to stop deforestation by 2030

General News Zambia signs Glasgow declaration to stop deforestation by 2030

Zambia is among the hundred countries that have signed the Glasgow Leaders declaration on forests to stop deforestation by 2030.

President Hichilema says the development as a milestone for Zambia as the country moves towards harnessing renewable energy.

Mr Hichilema cited solar, wind and hydroelectricity as of the renewable sources of energy government intends to promote.

The President , who is among the 200 world leaders and delegates attending the COP26, disclosed this on his official tweeter page yesterday.

“We signed the Glasgow Leaders Declaration on Forests to stop deforestation by 2030,” the President’s tweeter post read.

More than 100 world leaders have promised to end and reverse deforestation by 2030, in the COP26 climate summit’s first major deal.

Experts welcomed the move, but warned a previous deal in 2014 had “failed to slow deforestation at all” and commitments needed to be delivered on.

Felling trees contributes to climate change because it depletes forests that absorb vast amounts of the warming gas carbon dioxide ( CO2).

    .
    This is why that young Swedish environmental activist Greta Thunberg was calling out these politicians who attended this talkshop conference in Glasgow…you have our President who has cases of deforestation happening in Forrest 27 which was degazetted by Lazy Lungu, mining is about to begin in pristine Lower Zambezi NP, countless cases of former Minister of Lands sharing forest land, former President’s daughter fencing a govt forest in Sinda…if you are serious about deforestation do something about these cases immediately we are not interested in pointless tweets

  2. BEFORE WE IMPLEMENT SUCH POLICIES WHICH WILL DISADVANTAGE THE POOR IN ZAMBIA THE RICH SHOULD PAY ZAMBIA BECAUSE THEY ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE GLOBAL WARMING OVER THE YEARS THROUGH THROUGH THEIR INDUSTRIALISATION.
    SOON WE SHALL BE TOLD TO SHUT DOWN THE MAAMBA COAL POWER GENERATION. THESE ARE THE SORT OF POLICIES THAT CHINA AND INDIA ARE RESISTING BECAUSE THEY HAVE A NEGATIVE IMPACT ON THEIR ECONOMIES.

  3. AND WHAT THE RICH COUNTRIES PAY FOR CAUSING THE GLOBAL WARMING SHOULD GO TO CHARCOAL BURNERS FOR THE LIVILIHOODS THEY WILL FORFEIT THROUGH DEFORESTATION. OR AT LEAST FUND SUSTAINABLE ALTERNATIVE LIVILIHOODS.

  4. Solve the interruption of electricity supply problem first then we will lend you our left ear. UPND administration you have a five years Mandate. Heads up UPND administration, GRZ, IMF, World Bank and some of the diplomats after one year of UPND administration we will start pointing out things right in your sight that you’re not doing. We are given you Ample time to be honest with Zambian people. They have seen hardship for a long time. It’s about time someone be candid to them. We are a generation likes to play by the rules.

    “In sports,a time-out is a halt in the play. This allows the coaches of either team to communicate with the team, e.g., to determine strategy or inspire morale. Time-outs are usually called by coaches or players, Each team is limited to no more than four (4)…

  5. There is no law stopping anybody from cutting trees anywhere, and charcoal production is at an all time high. And with loadshedding going up (Lake Kariba is almost empty) and Zesco tariffs being doubled as part of the conditions for the IMF loan, there won’t be a tree left by 2030!

  6. F00lish dreamer. Out of touch with reality on the ground. The rich hh doesn’t realise how many rural people rely on fire wood. Hh is a donkey
