Neglecting to address environmental challenges of today would mean there would be no tomorrow-VP
Vice President Mohamed Waheed Deen has said that neglecting to address the environmental challenges of today would mean that there would be no tomorrow.
The Vice President made this remark while speaking at the launching of the Maldives Climate Change Trust Fund.
Speaking at the ceremony, the Vice President said that today’s younger generation must be told clearly, that protecting our environment is also protecting our future.
“I understand that this is a project to build a future for our younger generation, and educate them to move in the right direction of planning to use the environment in a more economically sustainable perspective”.
The Vice President also expressed his hopes that the trust fund would help to address the adverse impacts of climate change. Noting the Maldives’ vulnerability to the slightest changes to its environment, the Vice President spoke on the need to establish more responsible methods of waste management, and the urgency of adapting to alternative energy sources.
The Maldives Climate Change Trust Fund is a multi-donor collaboration between the government of Maldives, the European Union, Australian Agency for International Development, the World Bank, and other multinational agencies.
