Minister Ndlovu thanked EMA for bringing services to the people saying it complements Government’s National Development Strategy 1 which seeks to promote social and infrastructural development in the communities.
“This project fits perfectly into the devolution agenda, which promotes development of sustainable and resilient infrastructure not only in cities such as Harare or Bulawayo, but also at community level. This development is in support of the national blueprint, NDS 1 objectives of strengthening social infrastructure as well as ensuring sustainable environmental protection and resilience hence we look forward to the establishment of more of such offices across the country,” said Minister Ndhlovu.
Minister N.M Ndhlovu accompanied by Permanent Secretary Mr Munesuishe Munodawafa at the opening ceremony on Friday in Tsholotsho.
The Minister said EMA should construct similar offices across the country as the environment is under attack from the effect of climate change and unsustainable human activities hence there’s a need to the people to counter some of the environmental burdens.
“There is need for inclusivity in the utilisation of this structure so that it does not benefit EMA alone but the district, province and the nation at large. I’m also happy that the two officers who will initially man this office are both women and young. This is a milestone and I encourage you to continue on this trajectory of considering gender and other vulnerable groups,” said Minister Ndhlovu.
Minister Ndhlovu also congratulate and encarage EMA to construct such offices across the country.
“On of the Ministry of Environment, Climate, Tourism and Hospitality Industry, I would like to express my deepest gratitude to the EMA board and staff, for the construction of this new office, which signifies total commitment to investing in resilient, sustainable and innovative infrastructure as spelt out by the sustainable development goals and our National Development Strategy; and in the process creating an enabling environment towards promoting sustainable utilisation of natural resources and protection of the environment,” said Minister Ndhlovu.
