Somaliland President Ahmed Silanyo

We are a people with a tradition deeply rooted into pastoralist life where plants, people, animals and their environment are totally interdependent. And we are deeply affected when the environment is negatively impacted by any kind of pollution and degradation.

Today, the negative effects of environmental pollution are commonly evident in the form of unclean air and water, the two essential elements to sustain life.
And the most common pollutants causing environmental pollution, or say, unhealthy environment are usually chemicals, plastic garbage, and wastewater.

This Environmental pollution is happening in many parts of the world, but our situation in Somaliland is very critical since the International Community is refusing us, any form of recognition.

Many developed countries have introduced certain laws to not only regulate various types of pollution but also the laws to mitigate the adverse effects of pollution if we want to keep our environment safe and healthy. Without proper pollution control, environment soon becomes unhealthy.

The answer is, to push for Environmental Governance, and I would like to assure you that the Government of Somaliland is committed into strengthening the legal framework and policies to consolidate the vision of a sustainable country.

I would like to mention one example: the Law preventing the use of Plastic introduced under the leadership of Ms Shukri Haji Ismail, the Minister of Environment.
