At an international Forum on Africa & South-South Cooperation in Dakhla, Morocco, Minister El Haite highlighted the COP 22 achievements and addressed the expected impact of the reduction of climate change effects for Africa and the Small Island Developing States (SIDS). LI VP El Haite said: “Many people in African countries are experiencing hunger, which is shameful given the technology and innovative proposals made by Africans themselves. Africa needs to address issues of water and agriculture.”
Offering concrete proposals to the participants on implementation of Climate Change programmes on national level, including involvement of the Global Green Fund, she said: “we have seen unprecedented level of ideas and mechanisms of support at COP 22, which will be remembered as the Summit for action.”
In December last year President François Hollande decorated LI Vice President El Haité with France's Legion of Honour: the highest honour for civilian merits, recognising her career and commitment to the ecological cause both nationally and internationally and her will to “implement the ecological momentum".
