Government prepares specific legislative package to reduce plastic use

Angola is preparing a “specific” legislative package, which includes proposals for environmental fees, to reduce the use of plastic in the country, aiming at a “more harmonious” environment, said Secretary of State for the Environment, Paula Francisco Coelho.


According to the official, who was speaking this Tuesday on the sidelines of an in-person consultative seminar, aimed at the international conference "Stockholm +50", scheduled for next June, legal mechanisms continue to be prepared and campaigns are underway on the use of plastic.

"There is also a proposal for environmental fees, a very specific legislative package, there is also innovation and a program for a circular economy model and being able to make houses, buildings, but at the executive and ministry level, the issue of plastic has been debated" , he said.

"Both for cost reduction, use and even contribute not only to tourism, looking at the cultural aspects, but also to be able to have sanitation increasingly harmonious", she stressed.
Paula Francisco Coelho said that Angola "is gaining environmental health". "We speak as a whole, as a country, so if we are a whole, then we must contribute even better. We are moving more and more towards a more prosperous and healthier Angola", she pointed out.

Stimulating an inclusive dialogue between all of society and all of Government on the main themes of the "Stockholm +50" and leadership dialogues as they relate to each national context is the main objective of the meeting.

Reflections on the urgent need for actions to achieve a healthy planet and prosperity for all centralize the interventions at this meeting, which takes place in Luanda.

"Angola is getting ready to send a report on what are the concerns still related to environmental issues, looking at the issue related to education and environmental awareness", she stressed.

Sanitation, with a strong focus on waste and its proper treatment, the need for greater inclusion and communication in the environmental field are among the concerns of the stakeholders.

The Angolan Secretary of State for the Environment recalled that the country has a waste recovery program, a waste separation manual, but, she stressed, "still there are some less clean cities".

Angola is one of the 58 countries that organize national consultations with a view to the international conference in Stockholm on the 2nd and 3rd of June.

The seminar was promoted by the Angolan Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Environment in partnership with the embassy of Kenya, Sweden and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) in Angola.
