Address by President Isaias Afwerki on the 10th Anniversary of Eritrea’s Greening Campaign, Asmara, 15 May 2016Dear Participants,

The vital importance of afforestation and greening programmes is too vivid and universally recognized to merit elaboration or warrant new innovation.   These programmes have more relevance to us than other peoples and countries.  In the event, the pertinent question that must be raised on such occasions is what have we done in concrete terms? This must be gauged against the backdrop of our high aspirations; particularly as we are fully cognizant of the importance of the programmes.

The afforestation programme will not be rigorously implemented through sheer and sporadic public relations exercises.  It must go beyond posting publicity banners in various streets and billboards; broaching the subject on the sidelines of propitious occasions; or, simple adherence to “initiatives of development partners”.  It cannot be seen from the perspectives of global warming (as articulated by others) alone and by the perceived need of participating in international “conferences” to sign conventions aimed at reversing the trend.  A robust afforestation programme must go beyond nominal and inconsistent measures.
