Environment Ministry Speaks of work completed under Pro Tempore Presidency

The Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries, Forestry, the Environment, Sustainable Development and Immigration, in collaboration with the Central American Commission on Environment and Development (CCAD), held the Pro Tempore Presidency from July to December 2018. During Belize’s Presidency, the Ministry led the review and update of the 18-month CCAD work plan as a roadmap for institutional work, the strengthening of the agendas of technical committees and other regional technical work platforms were also promoted, and the signing of two non-reimbursable financing agreements with the Central American Bank for Economic Integration (CABEI) was completed.

Other accomplishments also included leading the work on two projects: the “Green Development Fund for the SICA region”, with support from the European Union and the German Cooperation; and the “Integrated Transboundary Ridges-to-Reef Management of the Mesoamerican Reef”, with support from Global Environment Facility. Also in recognizing the region’s struggle against the effects of climate change, the Ministry led the formulation and finalization of the Implementation Plan for the regional Climate Change Strategy 2018-2022.
