The Director for Environment in the Vice President’s Office Dr. Julius Ningu said conservation of biological diversity plays a very significant role for environmental sustainability through high level of cooperation, networking, exchange of scientific and technical information at national, regional and international level.
Speaking at a four day training workshop on clearing house mechanism Dr. Ningu said the Biological Diversity is part of the efforts initiated by the International community to manage the increasing deterioration of flora and fauna due to human activities. “Unsustainable use of these resources may cause an imbalance among various species of flora and fauna” added Dr. Ningu.
The four day training on Clearing-House Mechanism seeks to support the Convention's thematic and cross-cutting programmes of work by promoting cooperation, exchange of information and developing a network of partners as well as increasing public awareness of the Convention programmes.
Participants will be trained on how to contribute various information from the sectoral Ministries to the National Clearing House Mechanism website which will serve as biodiversity information exchange platform.
Speaking at the official opening ceremony Dr. Ningu said that, the website will facilitate greater collaboration amongst stakeholders and be an information resource for the general public.
The four day training has been facilitated by the Belgium Government through the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural sciences and is conducted in Arusha at Silver Palm Hotel.
