Mindelo, Jul 16 (Inforpress) – The coordinator of the Fourth National Communication on Climate Change Project, Cesária Gomes, wants greater engagement of entities in the sharing data for elaboration of the report, which is expected to be delivered to the United Nations in 2023.
The head of the project, which is being coordinated by the National Directorate of the Environment (DNA), made the appeal at the program official launch workshop in São Vicente, adding the data sharing gap was the “biggest embarrassment” detected in the Third Communication and it needs to be filled.
Cesária Gomes reminded to the press Thursday that Cabo Verde ratified the United Nations framework convention on climate change in 1995 and pledged to periodically prepare national communications and reports on greenhouse gases, which are also being prepared.
In 2000, according to the same source, the first communication was submitted, then the second in 2011 and the third in 2018, and now the fourth to be submitted, in a period of four years, until 2023 is being prepared.
