04/11/2021

THE CHIEF DIRECTOR FOR ENVIRONMENT,CLIMATE AND METEOROLOGY,PROF.P MATONDI, OFFICIALLY OPENING THE EMA 2022 STRATEGIC PLANNING REVIEW WORKSHOP GAVE THE FOLLOWING REMARKS:
• I am delighted to be part of this Strategic Review Meeting for the Environmental Management Agency as we gather here to take stock of the strategic achievements for the 2021 strategic year and also map a way forward for year 2022.
• Strategic planning is key and critical for the growth of institutions with EMA being no exception by providing a framework of how the Agency is going to operate to meet its set objects and targets bringing out a desired impact .
• I trust you are aware of the stakeholder’s expectation to submit the reviewed strategic document as well as the Director General’s contract by 30 December, 2021.
• Your Commitment to this process demonstrates the seriousness with which the Agency approaches its responsibilities.
• This is an important workshop as it determines how the Agency will operate in fulfilment of its mandate.
• Environmental Management as a cross-cutting theme continues to assume the centre stage in economic and social activities in Zimbabwe, regionally and at global level.
• Evidence shows that economic development is intricately linked to sustainable Environmental Management practices for all economic activities, in both rural and urban areas.
• The attainment of Zimbabwe’s national Vision of “… a prosperous and empowered and upper-middle income society by 2030,” is underpinned on sound Environmental Management practices.
• Eminently, the Zimbabwean Constitution in section 73 underscores the significance of environmental rights to its Citizenry.
• Environmental challenges permeate Zimbabwe’s economic and social fabric, with natural resources facing imminent threat of depletion and inevitable outright extinction because of activities such illegal mining, bad agricultural practices, invasion of wetlands, veld fires, pollution, biodiversity loss and deforestation, among others.
• The aforementioned practices exert unprecedented pressure which threatens sustainable management of the environment, hence thwarting possibilities of future ecosystem recovery including exposing societies to the vagaries of serious risks from environmental impairment.
• There is a nexus between economic and social development, and environmental management, wherein development tends to catalyse negative externalities on the environment, thus the need to achieve a sustainable balance.
• However, development is crucial in achieving the well-being of Citizens, and this must be done in a sustainable manner by all the stakeholders.
• The benefits of economic development accrue to the country, investors, society and the general populace alike, and similarly the effects of poor environmental management negatively affects the same stakeholders.
• Therefore, this particular Strategic Planning review session has a mammoth task of crafting a well-thought out strategic plan which achieves congruence and alignment between economic and social development and sound environmental management practices.
• The Agency is mandated to ensure that economic and social activities are undertaken within the precincts of sustainable environmental management.
• Accordingly, the National Development Strategy 1 (2021-2025) emphasises that “Environmental protection, climate resilience and natural resources management”, are key enablers for the attainment of vision 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
• Therefore, it is my sincere hope that this Strategic Planning Review session will unpack with precision the direction with which the Agency will adopt in 2022 and beyond, on issues of Environmental Management and Protection.
• In conclusion, I want to remind the Agency to get full value from GEF 7 Projects by lobbying for community driven and impactful projects.
• Furthermore, I would like to implore the Agency to be tighter in the prevention of land degradation, and push for rehabilitation of degraded landscapes in line with NDS1.
• I am challenging you to come up with a clear programme on wetland reclamation and issues of air pollution control and monitoring.
• Embracing a circular economy where waste is repurposed is a panacea to the waste management challenges that we are facing as a country and as EMA please advocate for its adoption for us to have a clean, safe and healthy environment for all.
• Finally, I am happy that the EMA Act Amendments Bill successfully went through Cabinet, hence our policies will soon sail through; and on that note, l want to encourage you to use that as a window to redirect environmental management in the country for the benefit of the citizenry.
• Environmental Management is in your hands, approach it with precision.
I thank you, Tatenda, Siyabonga.

We are in the process of training anti-litter monitors in all provinces, in collaboration with local authorities, in order to enhance their capacity for the sound management of waste in cities, growth points, and rural service centers.

I live in a community were almost anything that violates other residents's rights has been ignored by the responsible authorities For instance ,illicit beer is sold from certain houses and from open unutilized places were there are no toilets and discarding beer containers almost everywhere,barbershops that have sound systems that play music at the most highest volumes disturbing our peace.From one of the barbershops that is near me and situated in someone's yard, you see youth having beer and making so much noise that we are now used to watching TV without sound because you can hardly hear anything.Especially a barbershop at house number 2039 Tynwald South.I have written to the City of Harare but nothing has been done and I was thinking of inviting the Herald for them to just see what really happens in this small community.Please help us stop the noise and the selling of illicit beer or any beer from unauthorised places.The youths are being exposed to unruly behaviour.Thank you.

Good evening EMA. thank you for all you do and continue to do to try and keep our city clean. I noticed with great distress this last week just how terrible the litter is on the Bulawayo - Vic Falls highway! I can only imagine what tourists think as they drive along. Is there anyway that we can find some way to do a clean up? I would be happy to meet with any of you to talk through some ideas I had. Today I drove from Harare to Bulawayo and it is so much cleaner....not sure who is doing that clean up, but so grateful that they are!
