Speech of the President of Somaliland

Thursday, 05/11/2015

 

 

Dear Honourable Guests,

 

Good morning to you all, Alhamdulillah by the grace of Allah the Almighty God, I would like to welcome all the delegates of the Horn of Africa Environmental Network here in Hargeisa.

 

I would like to especially welcome the Honourable Dr. Rajendra Kumar Pachauri who was the chair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change for more than 12 years during which time, the organisation was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

 

Dr. Pachauri is a strong advocate for the protection of our Earth and our Environment everywhere in the world. Today, you have made it to Hargeisa, and in the name of the people of Somaliland, I would like to warmly welcome you in your second home!

 

Dear delegates, allow me to welcome also the esteemed guests that are honouring our city with their visit, namely Dr. Shaddad Muawia, the regional President of the Horn of Africa Environmental Network and Dr. Araya Asfaw, the Executive Director of the Horn of Africa Environmental Centre!

 

We are a people with a tradition deeply rooted into pastoralist life where plants, people, animals and their environment are totally interdependent. And we are deeply affected when the environment is negatively impacted by any kind of pollution and degradation.

 

Today, the negative effects of environmental pollution are commonly evident in the form of unclean air and water, the two essential elements to sustain life.

 

 

 

 

And the most common pollutants causing environmental pollution, or say, unhealthy environment are usually chemicals, plastic garbage, and wastewater.

 

This Environmental pollution is happening in many parts of the world, but our situation in Somaliland is very critical since the International Community is refusing us, any form of recognition.

 

Many developed countries have introduced certain laws to not only regulate various types of pollution but also the laws to mitigate the adverse effects of pollution if we want to keep our environment safe and healthy. Without proper pollution control, environment soon becomes unhealthy.

 

The answer is, to push for Environmental Governance, and I would like to assure you that the Government of Somaliland is committed into strengthening the legal framework and policies to consolidate the vision of a sustainable country.

 

I would like to mention one example: the Law preventing the use of Plastic introduced under the leadership of Ms Shukri Haji Ismail, the Minister of Environment.

 

We will continue our work to protect our environment, from the different landscapes, where our livestock’s is the backbone of our traditional life to the rich and long seacoast of Somaliland.

 

And we hope that we will continue to count on your strong support in our long endeavour.

 

Thank you very much!
