Agreement on training environmental staff
Maputo, 10 Jan (AIM) – The Mozambican Ministry for the Coordination of Environmental Action (MICOA) and the Eduardo Mondlane University (UEM) signed a memorandum of understanding in Maputo on 10 January establishing the bases for university training of MICOA staff.

The memorandum, signed by Environment Minister Alcinda Abreu and UEM Vice-Chancellor Orlando Quilambo, formalizes and strengthens partnership in training environmental scientists and other staff, particularly those who will monitor the implementation of new mega-projects that arise in the country.

At the ceremony, Abreu said that training staff for the environmental sector is of great importance in order to guarantee rational exploitation of natural resources and to contribute to the industrialization of Mozambique.

“The recent discoveries of natural gas in the Rovuma Basin, and the implementation of large scale projects to exploit coal and other resources are challenges for the Environment Ministry”, she said.

Through its Human Resources Development Plan, added Abreu, her Ministry has been seeking to create technical capacity at central, provincial, district and local levels.

For his part, Quilambo said that the desolate environmental situations experienced in some countries are not necessarily due to a lack of institutions or policies, but to a failure to integrate knowledge into policies.

“In Mozambique, the knowledge about these processes can be found in our institution”, said the Vice-Chancellor. “It is we who train, just to cite a few examples, architects, doctors, sociologists, anthropologists, environmental engineers and educators, who are the fundamental critical mass for us not to regret in the future mistakes that we now know how to avoid”.
