Chisinau, 25 November /MOLDPRES/ - President Maia Sandu today opened a national conference dedicated to the climate changes, held in Chisinau.   

According to the presidential press service, the head of state urged the participants to join their efforts, in order to diminish the impact of this phenomenon on the agricultural and forestry sectors of Moldova. The event was organized by the Presidency, in partnership with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Moldova and the Embassy of Sweden.   

„In Moldova, the droughty years are more and more frequent and this compromises the harvest on fields, make the wells, lakes and rivers to  dry up, trees to dry in woods. Our water resources, the agriculture and woods are the worst hit by the climate changes. Even if we go through a quite complicated period, with a war in the neighbourhood, a major energy crisis, with an uncertain economic situation, we must approach as seriously as possible also the problem of climate changes – and to act,’’ the Moldovan president said in her message to the participants in the conference.     

President Maia Sandu urged farmers and foresters, scientists and representatives of the public authorities to cooperate, in order to find common solutions for a more efficient adaptation to the climate changes. ‘’What the farmers should do, in order to no longer lose the harvest because of the drought? How can they know what varieties of plants are more resistant to drought, in order to cultivate them? What trees we must plant, in order to make sure that they take root, grow and will resist in 100 years as well? How can we protect the water resources, in order not to waste them? What irrigation systems we can use, so that they are efficient, use less and recycled water? I urged the participants in the conference to look for answers to these questions together,’’ the head of state stressed.        

The Moldovan president also said that the experience of other states can be relevant for us; therefore, the good practices in the field must be taken over. ‘’We must everybody learn from researchers and scientists, from farmers and foresters of Moldova or from abroad, from those who achieved concrete results in the adaptation to the climate changes. Thus, we will be able to leave a greener, a more sound country to the next generations, a country where one wants to live,’’ Maia Sandu added.
