National Priority Setting Workshop in Botswana Identifies Key Priorities and Action for Strengthening Environmental Governance
More than 80 participants from various government sectors and stakeholders came together in Botswana, Gaborone from 3-4 November 2010 to discuss national priorities regarding access to information, public participation and access to justice in environmental matters. These issues are covered by the Principle of the Rio Declaration, which was adopted at the Rio Summit in 1992 by Heads of States and Governments. The workshop was organized by Botswana’s Department of Environmental Affairs through a collaborative project with UNITAR. In his opening remarks, Mr. Phetogo Phage, Director of Botswana’s Meteorological Services, highlighted that the workshop marked a milestone in the Ministry of Environment, Wildlife and Tourism’s Strategic Plan for strengthening partnership with stakeholders.
