Tanzania invites global visitors to its National Parks

MINISTER in the Vice President Office (Union and Environment), Selemani Jafo, has asked people from other parts of the world to visit Tanzania National Parks to witness the abundance and diversity of wildlife available in them.

He made the remarks on behalf of President, Samia Suluhu Hassan, while launching the Middle East Green Initiative (MGI) 2021 held in Riyadh Saudi Arabia.

Mr Jafo said people should visit Tanzania to see how it is keen in conservation matters and how it has succeeded in reserving 32 per cent of its areas as National Parks of Serengeti, Nyerere, Ngorongoro, Ruaha, Kilimanjaro among others as well as Zanzibar.

He said in the last two decades, Tanzania has been undertaking special initiatives on protecting the nature of Mount Kilimanjaro and conducting tree planting campaigns across the country, where on average a total of 276 million trees were planted annually through local government authorities.

Mr Jafo said Tanzania recently increased investment in renewable energy by constructing a 3 billion USD Julius Nyerere Hydropower Project, which will generate 2,115 Megawatt and increase the contribution of renewable energy in the national energy-mix by more than four times and making it the largest portion of the energy mix in the country.

“Today I have learnt that MGI is designed not only to push forward the efforts of conserving the environment in the Middle East region,but also bring togather decision makers from government, private sector and financiers to plan and implement togather the green initiatives for sustainable development,” he said.

“On behalf of our President Samia Suluhu Hassan I would like to express my sincere gratitude and thanks to His Royal Highness, Crown Prince Mohamed Bin Salman and Deputy Prime Minister of the Royal Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for inviting Tanzanian President in this important event of launching of (MGI),” he said.

Jafo said a green economy is an economy that integrates the three pillars of economic growth, social welfare and environmental sustainability, adding that it pursues low carbon, resource efficient and socially inclusive pathways.

He said that is the best way forward for sustainable economic development which put on the table the environmental conservation agenda.

“As we are heading towards the 26th conference of parties of United Nations Framework of Conservation on Climate Change, Tanzania through its nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) plans to reduce 30-35 of its GHG emissions by 2030 to contribute to the global goal of limiting the increase of global temperature to 1.5C,” he said.
