EPA, Partners Sign Agreement

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has signed a partnership agreement with several government line ministries and agencies as well as the state-run University of Liberia (UL) for the enhancement of the Paris Agreement.

The agreement was signed between the EPA on one hand, and the Ministries of Agriculture, Transport and Mines and Energy, Monrovia City Corporation (MCC), Forestry Development Authority (FDA) and the UL on Tuesday, November 19, 2019.

Accordingly, the signing ceremony was followed by the presentation of office equipment to the National Determining Contribution (NDC) hubs by the EPA. It was aimed at building and strengthening Liberia’s national capacity to implement the transparency elements of the Paris Climate Agreement (CBIT).

Speaking at the signing ceremony, EPA Executive Director, Mr. Nathaniel T. Blama, said the initiative is geared to strengthen the capacity of sector agencies and ministries to enable them report from their respective thematic areas.

“We have a role in Liberia to increase the transparency component of the Paris agreement. So, this signing and material presentation ceremony is to strengthen the capacity of key sectors so that they will report effectively on the sectors they are assigned to,” stated Blama.

“So, we purchased some equipment for your focal persons that they will use to do the job. We are going to also provide some support to enhance their work. This is to strengthen our monitoring to report accurately on the Paris Agreement,” he added.

Mr. Ernest S. Clarke, Deputy Minister for Administration at the Ministry of Agriculture, lauded the EPA and the Global Environment Fund (GEF) for the support, and vowed that the donated equipment will be used for the intended purpose.

“We will use the equipment for their intended purpose. I want to promise you, on behalf of the Ministry of Agriculture, that we will play our part towards and collaborate effectively with the hub,” he noted.

Mr. C. Mike Doryen, Managing Director of the Forestry Development Authority (FDA), said the agreement is in the right direction of national growth and development.

Also in remarks, Madam WeadeKobbah-Wureh, Vice President for University of Liberia (UL), indicated that the research will be able to inform public policy, vowing that the UL stands ready to work with the EPA and all other partners in ensuring the successful implementation of the program.

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I'm looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

    Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this blog. It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's hard to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and visual appearance. I must say you've done a amazing job with this. In addition, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Firefox. Superb Blog!

    When I initially commented I clicked the -Notify me when new feedback are added- checkbox and now each time a remark is added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there any manner you may remove me from that service? Thanks!
