Govt for people-centred ecosystem conservation

Minister of Natural Resources and Climate Change, Michael Usi, has expressed hope that a three-day regional conference on Biodiversity Finance taking place in Blantyre will help the country conserve its ecosystem.

He was speaking when he opened the conference, which has attracted delegates from 18 countries.

Taking place in Malawi for the first time, the 10th Regional Dialogue on Biodiversity Finance is expected to provide a platform for discussions on financing the conservation of the ecosystem.

Usi says a more people-centred approach to conserving the ecosystem will help in addressing some of the challenges that arise due to natural disasters.

He was optimistic that delegates will come up with tangible solutions to ecosystem challenges.

Taking his turn, Minister of Finance and Economic Affairs Simplex Chithyola-Banda, who was in attendance, described Biodiversity Finance as a window that countries like Malawi should utilise.

United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Resident Representative for Malawi, Fenella Frost, says countries are struggling to, among others, recover from natural disasters.
