EU/Latin America and Caribbean countries (LAC) 2008 ministerial conference on Environment: extracts from the joint press conference by Janez Podobnik and Manuel Ernesto Bernales Alvarado

69 views

The protection of the environment was at the heart of the Ministerial Conference that the European Union and Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) countries held on 4 March 2008 in Brussels. The goal of the conference was to develop close cooperation in areas such as climate change, energy and other environment-related issues, as both regions consider that long term prosperity and economic growth depend on ensuring sustainable development. At a press conference at the end of the meeting, Janez Podobnik, Slovenian Minister for the Environment and Spatial Planning and President in office of the Council, said that combating climate change remained the most important economic and environmental challenge for the future. He added that the negative impact of human activities was already there and would become irreversible if we do not act at world level. Manuel Ernesto Bernales Alvarado, President of the National Council for Environment of Peru, insisted in this idea by saying that all the nations and States had the duty to take action. In relation to biofuels, both said that the criteria of sustainability had to be respected.
