As part of Government’s response measures to the impacts of climate change which have been evidenced by increased occurrence of extreme weather events such as droughts floods, tropical cyclones and mid-season dry spells, the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development has for the past two budget cycles been issuing budget call circulars which mandate all Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) to mainstream climate change in planning and budgetary processes.

This was complimented by the Ministry of Environment, Climate, Tourism and Hospitality Industry efforts towards capacitating MDAs to integrate climate change in their planning and budgeting process along the lines of devolution. The Ministry started off by capacitating districts and provincial development committees to integrate climate change in development planning within the context of devolution with over 60 districts and nine ministries having been capacitated to date.

Yesterday, the 1st of August 2023, the Director for Climate Change Management Department Mr Washington Zhakata led his department in capacitating the Ministry's staff and its Parastatals on climate change mainstreaming in planning and budgetary purposes.

In order to strengthen climate change coordination and financial transparency, all MDAs will be required to report on adaptation and mitigation programmes being implemented within thier sectors through the Budget as well as development partners, community and private institutions initiatives, including the associated co-benefits.

Destination Zimbabwe continues to receive an endorsement as ideal for hosting international conferences, with the latest recommendation coming from the United World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO), to host the Communication, Media and Tourism Training in Africa Workshop in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe in November 2023.

The Chief Executive for Zimbabwe Tourism Authority Ms Ms Winnie Muchanyuka and the Secretary General of the UNWTO Mr Zurab Pololikashvili have today signed a hosting agreement on the upcoming Communication, Media and Tourism Training in Africa workshop on the sidelines of the 66th UNWTO Commission for Africa.

The media have a crucial role to play in putting emerging destinations across the globe on the global tourist map, thus helping to boost the economies.

The relationship between tourism and the media is vital and complex. Tourism is highly dependant on media reporting because the vast majority of travel decisions are made by people who have never seen the destination first hand for themselves.

The tourism industry is a vast and complex ecosystem that heavily relies on effective communication to thrive. With the rise of social media, instant messaging apps, and digital marketing, communication has become even more critical than ever before.

The Secretary for Environment, Climate, Tourism and Hospitality Industry Zimbabwe Ambassador Raphael Tayerera Faranisi and the Chief Director Tourism and Hospitality Management Ms Tarirai Musonza also witnessed the signing ceremony.

The role of an environmental laboratory is to conduct scientific testing and analysis of various environmental samples, such as air, water, soil, and biological specimens, to assess the quality, composition, and presence of contaminants.

On Wednesday the 19th of July 2023, the Zambia Environmental Management Agency delegation visited the Zimbabwe Environmental Management Agency Laboratory in Harare, Zimbabwe for benchmarking purposes.

The EMA laboratory is a national institute built for support and advice on all aspects of environmental quality. The laboratory supports the function of the Environmental management functions by providing high quality analytical services on environmental samples for informed decisions and regulatory compliance.

The Zambian delegation was welcomed by the Chairperson of the Zimbabwe Environmental Management Board Ambassador Zenzo Nsimbi who said that the look and learn visit was not only a one way experience but an opportunity for both the entities to identify, through deliberations, areas of improvement in carrying out the similar mandate of environmental protection and sustainable management of natural resources.

The Environmental Management Agency Director for Environmental Protection Mr Christopher Mushava also led the tour and explained the importance of having an environmental laboratory as a country.

The benchmark visit will help foster good relations and a collaborative spirit as Zimbabwe and Zambia work together in achieving and ensuring a safe, clean and healthy environment for the present and future generations of the two nations. The initiative was also very critical towards building strong relationships which will be taken through bilateral arrangements.

The Zambian delegation was led by the Chairperson for the Zambia Environmental Management Agency Board, Professor Lovejoy Malambo who applauded the Zimbabwe EMA for the sterling work they are doing in protecting the environment.

Carbon credits, also known as carbon offsets, are permits that allow the owner to emit a certain amount of carbon dioxide or other greenhouse gases. One credit permits the emission of one ton of carbon dioxide or the equivalent in other greenhouse gases, thus allowing them to receive recognition for their contribution towards climate action.

Environment, Climate, Tourism and Hospitality Industry Zimbabwean Minister Hon Nqobizitha Mangaliso Ndhlovu has officially opened the Africa Voluntary Carbon Credit Market Forum under the theme, "Accelerating Africa in Climate Economy, " at Elephant Hills Resort in Victoria Falls, today.

The Conference is a brainchild of Africa Voluntary Carbon Credits Market, a local initiative that seeks to facilitate a robust, holistic and inclusive people-centric approach to the climate economy. The intervention is set to increase the momentum leading to the achievement of Zimbabwe's National Development Strategy (NDS1) goals , Zimbabwe Vision 2030, Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and setting the tone for Africa Agenda 2063.

The Minister articulated that
Zimbabwe has developed its national Carbon Trading Framework which will guide players and protect investors who wish to establish carbon trading related projects in the country. The Framework establishes institutions to enhance transparency of transactions and accountability to ensure that the country gets a fair share of the proceeds from the trade. For the avoidance of doubt, this is climate financing that should and must enhance the developing countries’ capabilities to achieve their economic growth objectives in a sustainable manner.

The official opening ceremony was also attended by the Former President of the Republic of South Africa His Excellency Jacob Zuma, who is also the Board Member of Belarus-Africa Foreign Trade Association, Malawi Minister of Environment, Hon Dr Michael Usi, South African Ambassador to Zimbabwe Her Excellency Rejoice Mabudafhasi, Acting Mayor of the City of Victoria Falls, Clr Mutasa, Co-Chairpersons of the African Voluntary Carbon Credits Market, Chief Director Environment, Climate and Meteorological Services Department Professor Prosper Matondi, Director Climate Change Management Department Mr Washington Zhakata, Senior Government Officials, Private Sector Representatives and other invited guests.

Under the Second Republic Zimbabwe’s foreign policy is premised on the engagement and re-engagement drive, and it has stood out as a key pillar of National Development Strategy 1 (NDS1).

On the 5th of July 2023, the World Food Programme Representative to Zimbabwe Ms Francesca Erdelmann and the Japanese Ambassador to Zimbabwe His Excellency Satoshi Tanaka paid some courtsey calls to the Minister of Environment, Climate, Tourism and Hospitality Industry Hon Nqobizitha Mangaliso Ndhlovu respectively.

The Ministry has been working in collaboration with the World Food Programme in the implementation of several projects and in the implementation of a project entitled “Integrated Climate Risk Management for Food Security and Livelihoods in Zimbabwe focusing on Masvingo and Rushinga Districts”

The project has three key components whose focus is on, (i) the reduction of vulnerability to the impacts of climate change by communities, (ii) strengthening capacity and systems to support national and community adaptation, and (iii) management of climate risk based on climate forecast and information.

These project components align well with the National Development Strategy (NDS) 1 on the Government ’s call for the reduction of vulnerability by communities to the impacts of climate change.

As part of the fight against climate change the Ministry, through support from the Green Climate Fund is currently in the process of developing the National Adaptation Plan, which should be out by mid-year.

The Green Climate Fund project has supported the Meteorological Services Department to work on its climate database, capacity building of its officers in seasonal forecasting and implementation of the Participatory Integrated Climate Services for Agriculture (PICSA). All these activities contribute to improved weather and climate services for communities to enable them to adapt to climate change.

The Minister appreciated the technical and financial assistance received from Japan towards the development of Community Based Tourism Enterprises (CBTEs) focusing on 4 pilot projects namely, Gairezi eco-tourism, Tengenenge arts and crafts, Chesvingo Karanga village and Bulawayo township tourism. All these projects have the potential to contribute towards sustainable livelihoods development, employment creation, community development and poverty alleviation of the Zimbabwe people in mainstream tourism activities.

The Minister also appreciated the collaboration between the Ministry and the World Food Programme in Zimbabwe.

The World Food Programme Representative Ms Francesca Erdelmann and the Japanese Ambassador to Zimbabwe His Excellency Satoshi Tanaka applauded the recently launched Carbon Credit Framework for Zimbabwe. The Framework will see incomes from the carbon credits deposited into the National Climate Fund and channelled towards funding of climate-friendly projects.

I know The Ministry has made an effort by waving VAT on various products for local tourists, but may you also consider our entry fees and accommodation charges for your National Parks Facilities, they are still rather prohibitive to a certain extent. Let's have a drive to promote local tourism by making it affordable and I'm certain the healing process for the sector will gain a lot of traction!
