Rio de Janeiro - The Republic of Angola considers the green economy a tool to achieve sustainable development and assess the opportunities and challenges related to this concept, as well as the necessary means of its implementation.
This position is contained in its national report on sustainable development presented in the UN Summit Rio +20, which ended on Friday with the adoption of the final document dubbed “The Future We Want”.
According to the report, Angola recognizes that globally countries, which are initiating their process of development and inclusion in market economies, do not have the same basic possibilities of economic development taken by industrialized countries.
According to the report, this is justified by the fact that the planet can no longer bear one more model that improperly uses environmental resources to achieve economic growth.
The document reads that in Africa especially, the vulnerability of the eternities generated by a model of sustainable development is not very high.
As a result of predatory development, the report underlines that there is implicitly a global distribution of environmental costs.
So, Angola highlights in this document the promotion of the green economy that must necessarily consider the differences in current development possibilities in face of those previously verified, so that they are corrected and balanced, and thus the developing nations may also be committed to developing the green economy.
