ALLIED TIMBERS DONATED CONSTRUCTION MATERIAL WORTH $20k usd TO BULILIMA DISTRICT.

The community of Bulilima District has partnered with Allied Timbers Zimbabwe to build Ndiweni School, Ngwana Clinic and Staff Cottages.

Allied Timbers Zimbabwe which is a wholly government company donated roofing timber, cement, doors, poles and fencing wire for the 3 projects.

The handover ceremony was held on the 27th of June 2020 at Ngwana clinic in Bulilima District where construction has already started.

The initiative is a community based project where they supply the bricks, builders and carpenters while ATZ through its corporate social responsibility and investments program supports the project by providing roofing timber, cement, doors, ceiling and other building materials.

This donation is the first in Matabeland and the community sought partnership with Allied Timbers Zimbabwe. The handover was done by the chairman of ATZ, Mr. Itayi Ndudzo to the Member of Parliament for Bulilima East and Minister of Environment, Climate, Tourism and Hospitality Industry, Hon. Nqobizitha Mangaliso Ndhlovu.

However, this CSR investment is ATZ's 5th through other partnerships with schools in Manicaland and other surrounding communities in Zimbabwe either through provision of construction materials, roofing timber, and Smart Beekeeping Training of Trainers projects to assist the vulnerable and youths in Zimbabwe to self-sustain themselves.

TOUR OF THE GULLY RECLAMATION PROJECTS IN CHIREYA GOKWE NORTH.

The Environmental Management Agency supported the Chireya Land Restoration component of the Hwange Sanyati Biological Corridor Project under the Global Environmental Facility (GEF) cycle, the project is a pilot for sustainable management of fragile sodic soils, a challenge that is affecting over 33% of the country.

The Minister of Environment, Climate, Tourism and Hospitality Industry Hon N.M Ndhlovu together with the Minister of State for Midlands Province toured the Chireya Land Restoration in Gokwe North.

As the Land is characterized by fragile, sodic soils and is highly susceptible to erosion. The challenge is aggravated by unsustainable human activities on an already fragile ecosystem, these include infrastructural development, overstocking and unsustainable agriculture on stream banks.

In order to achieve Sustainable Land Management the project focused mainly on gully reclamation, support of alternative community livelihoods and sustainable agriculture.The livelihood projects include consolidated gardens (4), conservation agriculture, beekeeping and cement brick making.

TOUR OF SECA PROJECTS IN GOKWE.

The Minister of Environment, Climate, Tourism and Hospitality Industry Hon N.M Ndhlovu visited Gokwe District, Ward 16 Njelele 1, where there are two complementary projects: Supporting Enhanced Climate Action for Low Carbon and Climate Resilient Development Pathway (SECA) Project 2016-20 implemented by the Climate Change Management Department& UNDP as well as Inclusive Growth and Sustainable Livelihood (IGSL) project implemented by Min responsible for Small Medium Enterprises and UNDP.

Before the projects, the community had vegetable production enterprises which were facing water shortages due to the changing climate and losing produce due to lack of post harvest processing facilities.

The SECA Projects drilled two boreholes to date, for domestic water supply and livestock watering. Another two boreholes have been sitted and installation will be done by September 2020, these will be solely for irrigation purposes. The irrigated fields will be established upstream from the riverbank and the community will move off the wetland margins in line with Environmental Management Agency guidelines.

The IGSL project facilitated construction of a vegetable processing shed, where the community is solar drying and vegetables and fruits (bananas and mangoes) and packaging for resale. Plans are in place under the SECA project to install a solar powered system at the processing plant and solar geyser as pilots for climate change mitigation.

With these interventions, the communities has reliable potable water supply, from borehole powered by a solar system into storage tanks. There is value addition to the vegetable produce with improved shelf life through solar drying and packaging.

Minister Ndhlovu was accompanied by the Minister of State for Midlands Province Hon Larry Mavhima in touring these projects.

Today Zimbabwe joined the rest of the world in commemorating the World Desertification and Drought Day under the theme, 'Food, Feed, Fibre - Towards Sustainable Production and Consumption. '

This 17th of June was proclaimed in 1994 by the United Nations General Assembly as the 'World Day to Combat Desertification and Drought ' in order to promote public awareness on land integrity and to implement the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD).

The focus of this commemoration is on countries experiencing serious drought and desertification particularly in Africa. The day is unique because it reminds everyone that land degradation neutrality is achievable through nature based problem-solving, strong community involvement and co-operation at all levels.

Speaking at this event, the Minister of Environment, Climate, Tourism and Hospitality Industry Hon N.M
Ndhlovu urged all Zimbabweans to tackle desertification and drought through integrated policies and interventions, strengthened community participation and co-operation at all levels.

Minister Ndhlovu also emphasized that stakeholder participation is vital in the realization of a well managed environment. 'My Ministry through its parastals has moved a gear up in implementing sustainable land management programmes. This has been supported by the Government in mobilising financial resources to support the implementation of land degradation neutrality, and by building an effective partnership at a global and national scale.'

Speech By the Minister of Environment, Climate, Tourism and Hospitality Industry Hon. N. M. Ndhlovu (MP) on the joint 2020 World Environment Day and June National Clean Up day.

It is my singular honour and privilege to address the Nation on this joint World Environment Day and National Clean-up Day. The World Environment Day is commemorated each year on the 5th of June and coincidentally this year, 2020, it is falling on the First Friday of the month of June which is a National Clean-up Day in our country, Zimbabwe, hence this joint address.

World Environment Day which is held on the 5th of June every year, is the United Nations’ most important day for encouraging worldwide awareness and action for the protection of our environment. Since 1972, it has grown in leaps and bounds to become a global platform for public outreach that is widely celebrated in over 140 countries. This ‘people’s day’ seeks to promote an understanding that communities are pivotal in changing attitudes towards environmental issues. The World Environment Day is the most prominent of all environmental observance days and has been commemorated over the years with countries calling for local action for environmental protection.
Ladies and gentlemen, this year we commemorate this day under the theme ‘Time for Nature-Act now’. The theme is calling for us to act today and now to protect the environment from challenges such as the accelerating species loss and degradation of the natural world. The Year 2020 is the United Nations’ Year of Biodiversity, hence the need and time to put nature as a concern that is both urgent and existential. The food we eat, the air we breathe and the water we drink, all come from nature. More than ever before, mankind is becoming reliant on nature’s services than previously imagined, and this is shaking our natural environment in significant ways.

Fellow countrymen, ladies and gentlemen, it is time to reimagine our relationship with nature. Recent events, from bushfires in Brazil, the United States and Australia, to locust infestations across East Africa and the ramifications of Cyclone Idai in Zimbabwe and Mozambique; and now, the COVID 19 pandemic, demonstrate the interdependence of humans and the webs of life in which they exist. The year 2020, is a year for urgency, ambition and action to address the crisis facing nature. It is also an opportunity to fully incorporate sustainable nature-based solutions into the whole landscape of biodiversity protection. It will take neither just an individual nor a village, but the entire national and global community to rise together and save Mother Nature.

It is sad to note that human activities have significantly changed three quarters of land surface and two thirds of ocean area globally. Between 2010 and 2015 alone, globally, 32 million hectares of forest disappeared; wildlife species are disappearing tens to hundreds of times faster now than in the past; and within the next 10 years, one out of every four known species may have been wiped off the planet.

Our demand for food and resources is driving deforestation, changing patterns of land use, increasing pollution levels and destroying natural habitats across the globe. Today, one-third of the world’s topsoil has been degraded from acidification, pollution and other unsustainable land management practices.

On the other hand ladies and gentlemen, pollution is a major and growing threat to biodiversity, with devastating effects on potable water and aquatic life. There may now be around 5 trillion macro and micro-plastic pieces floating in the ocean, making up 60 to 90 per cent of marine debris. Open waste dumps impact on plants and animals, while pesticides, fertilizers and other chemicals harm pollinators like bees, which are a vital natural link in the ecosystem.

Fellow Zimbabweans, the unfolding phenomena of climate change, biodiversity depletion, desertification, pollution, veld fires, land degradation and irrational use of finite natural resources remain serious preoccupations for Zimbabwe and the world at large, as they pose real impediments to sustainable development efforts. Every year our beautiful country is losing 300 hectares of forest due to deforestation and over one million hectares of land due to veld fires.

It is also predicted that if business continues as usual, all Zimbabwe urban wetlands would have disappeared by 2040; and the effects of climate change are becoming more real than ever before. Our country is losing an average of 17.8 million tonnes of soil nutrients each year due to land degradation, and it is indeed a cause for concern as it will have severe implications for humanity, including the collapse of food and health systems.

Ladies and gentlemen, it is important to note that the global economy is intricately tied to biodiversity. We must embrace the opportunities and value of the natural environment and not work against it.

As a response to the global threat, my Ministry will be championing an initiative to ensure that biodiversity and ecosystem services values are incorporated into national accounts. This is crucial to enable informed decision-making. The contribution of biodiversity to our economy has remained largely unknown and to some extent understated. We are therefore hopeful that this initiative to formally recognise the biodiversity economy will assist us to harness and strengthen investments into this sector.

Furthermore, biodiversity co-exists with communities and thus there is need to ensure that communities are capacitated to manage and benefit from it. My Ministry is at an advanced stage in revamping the Communal Areas Management Programme for Indigenous Resources popularly known as CAMPFIRE. The revamping process will see communities being capacitated to better manage and adequately benefit from resources within their locality. The ultimate aim is to ensure we maintain a balance between community livelihoods and the need to protect our resources.

We are thus taking advantage of the various windows of international financing to address drivers of biodiversity loss. We understand that much of the loss of biodiversity is driven by poverty in most areas of Zimbabwe and even globally. Hence, international financing from partners such as the United Nations Country Team, Global Environment Facility and Green Climate Fund is assisting us to address this delicate balance between livelihoods and environmental management.

Ladies and gentlemen, I alluded earlier to the fact that this year’s World Environment Day is with a difference as it coincides with the National Clean-up Day, an important day on the National Calendar. l therefore, urge every sector of the economy and every one of us to honour their commitments to safeguard nature, keeping the environment clean and pollution free; and ensure that environmental laws are upheld. I want to call upon those in entrepreneurship to embrace sustainable business models.

At personal household level and due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are cleaning up in our homes and strictly observing recommendations to separate waste, among other healthy practices. The pandemic itself does not thrive in healthy and clean environments and I urge us all as citizens to continue practicing health and hygiene as recommended by the health experts.

To all stakeholders, I want to thank you for your continued support towards fulfilling our national vision of attaining a clean, safe and healthy environment.

I THANK YOU, NGIYABONGA, NDATENDA.

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!
Why not opening Hotels and Restaurants for sittings this industry is the most affected
Ever beautiful Zimbabwe...
