5.    In his address, President Museveni welcomed Ministers and other participants to Uganda and                 Tab stops: 0.39", List tab + Not at 0.25"
congratulated the AMCEN Bureau for the successful organization of the ninth session of AMCEN which
allowed discussion of pertinent issues during the preparatory process for the World Summit on Sustainable
Development.

6.     He said that after colonialism, Africa had been facing a new form of aggression from developed
countries, namely pollution. People in developed countries generated the greatest percentage of greenhouse
gases and Africa was paying the price for their unsustainable lifestyles. He noted that the population of
Uganda had increased from 4.5 million people in 1956 to the present 23 million. 500 million hectares of
land in Africa had been affected by soil erosion, including 60 per cent of arable land, and this represented a
serious threat to food security on the continent. Population growth had stretched natural resources while
trade and methods of harnessing the resources had not improved much. More than 39 per cent of the total
area of Africa had been affected by desertification, inadequate sanitation and sewage treatment facilities and
lack of access to safe drinking water continued to impede progress.

7.     He pointed out that 96 per cent of Ugandans did not have access to electricity and this led to,
inter alia, unsustainable use of fuelwood by peasants. He emphasized the importance of energy from clean
sources, such as hydropower from dams on the Nile, for the continent of Africa. He requested African
ministers of environment to take a strong position on power for the continent and to deliver that message to
the World Summit on Sustainable Development.

8.    He said that the establishment of the New Partnership for Africa’s development (NNEPAD) had the
potential to help Africa to address issues of combating poverty and promoting sustainable socio-economic
development and addressing the region’s environmental challenges. NEPAD would bring Africa together to
resolve the major challenges to the continent.

9.    He commended the production of the first Africa Environment Outlook report.

10. At the opening ceremony, statements were also made by Mr. Ruhakana Rugunda, Minister of Water,
Lands and Environment of Uganda, Mr. Klaus Töpfer, Executive Director of the United Nations
Environment Programme, (UNEP), Mr. Muhammad Kabir Sa’id, Federal Minister of Environment of
Nigeria and Mr. Borge Brende, Minister of Environment of Norway.

12.11. Mr. Rugunda welcomed ministers and other participants to the meeting. Outlining the history of              Formatted: Bullets and Numbering
AMCEN, he said that one of the main objectives of the session was to provide a platform for ministers to
chart the way forward for the Conference in the context of the World Summit on Sustainable Development
and major developments in Africa such as the development of NEPAD.

12. Mr. Brende said that the ninth session was taking place at a crucial moment for international
environmental cooperation. He noted that the last decade had been characterized by the signing of important
environmental conventions. During the decade, the international community had agreed on several issues
that included the prioritization of poverty eradication, ensuring that globalization became a positive force for
all and reversing negative environmental trends such as deforestation and desertification. He noted,
however, that fighting poverty would be impossible if countries failed to fulfill their environmental
commitments and that well managed and well functioning ecosystems formed the basis of society in terms of
production, consumption, health and welfare. He observed that poor countries were the most vulnerable to
climate change, loss of biodiversity and air, soil and water pollution.

13. He pointed out that after a decade of words, time had come to transform words into action and
emphasized that the next decade must be the decade of implementation. There was a need to find effective
ways of following up the Millennium Development Goals on freshwater and sustainable energy and to
launch ambitious action programmes in those areas, which were of fundamental importance for the African
continent. Referring to the World Summit on Sustainable Development, he noted that AMCEN would make
a crucial contribution to the success of the Summit. He commended AMCEN for having understood that
building African capacity in the field of environmental management was also crucial for economic
development. He also commended African countries for their political leadership in developing the
environmental component of NEPAD. He recognized that the implementation of NEPAD was a great
responsibility for African countries and gave the assurance that the Nordic countries would do their best to
support the effort of African countries.

14. In his statement, Mr. Töpfer expressed appreciation for the support the Government of Uganda had
given to promote the work of UNEP, including the hosting of the ninth session, and to the people of Uganda
for their hospitality. He observed that the ninth session was taking place at an opportune time during which
Africa was undergoing many changes which included the forthcoming transformation of the Organization of
African Unity (OAU) into the African Union. At the same time, African Heads of State had recently
launched NEPAD with the aim of putting the African continent on the path to sustainable development. The
Heads of State, mindful of the importance of the environment, had included an environment component in
NEPAD. He noted that the forthcoming World Summit on Sustainable Development was expected to
propose action-oriented measures to make the implementation of Agenda 21 more supportive of sustainable
development, particularly cross-cutting issues such as the environment.

15. He pointed out that the most serious challenge facing African countries was striking a balance
between economic development and sustainable management of the environment. He called upon the
ministers to look into their role during the World Summit on Sustainable Development in terms of ensuring
that the environment was given its rightful consideration within the broader context of sustainable
development. He urged the Ministers to bear in mind that Africa still faced a wide range of environmental
challenges. The state of the African environment had continued to decline and the region had been losing
natural resources at relatively high rates in comparison to other regions of the world. The region had
experienced persistent poverty which had accelerated the degradation of natural resources and intensified
desertification. Inadequate and unsafe water supplies continued to affect an increasing number of people in
the region, thus aggravating problems of ill health and food insecurity among the poor. The expansion of
agriculture into marginal areas and clearance of natural habitats such as forests and wetlands had been a
major cause of land degradation. The loss of biological resources translated into loss of economic potential
and options for the earth’s economic and social development in the future.




                                                                                                               3
UNEP/AMCEN/9/xx2

16. He said that donor countries, including Norway, Belgium, Switzerland and the United Kingdom of
Great Britain and Northern Ireland had provided additional financial resources to support Africa and that the
Government of Ireland had recently created a trust fund with Euro 900,000 to support Africa. Those
countries had confirmed their desire to increase their contribution in the future.

17. Mr. Sa’id expressed his gratitude to the President and the people of Uganda for hosting the ninth
session and also the Executive Director of UNEP. Outlining the mandate of AMCEN, he noted that much
progress had been realized in the face of many challenges, including the ground-breaking agreements forged
at the eighth session of AMCEN from 3 to 6 April 2000 in Abuja.

17.18. He pointed out that the present session was relevant in the context of the World Summit on               Formatted: Bullets and Numbering
Sustainable Development and other emerging initiatives such as the African Union and NEPAD. He
expressed satisfaction with the first Africa Environment Outlook report and looked forward to the
establishment of a regular framework for such environmental reporting. Noting that he was reaching the end
of his presidency of AMCEN, he said that the new AMCEN strategic vision was a key foundation for the
future.

capacity was strengthened to enable it to fulfil its mandate and vision.

22. He observed that there was a need to put in place a mechanism for resource mobilization and other
aspects of capacity-building. In order to fulfil the mandate of AMCEN, it was necessary for African
countries to maximize their strengths while minimizing their weaknesses. Ways of achieving that included

26. One minister said that AMCEN’s role was particularly critical in the run-up to the World Summit on
Sustainable Development. She said AMCEN would have to be assertive in establishing its mandate among
the emerging initiatives in Africa. This would require strengthening the AMCEN secretariat and reviewing
the AMCEN constitution. She stressed the need for Africa to speak with one voice at the World Summit.
AMCEN needed to consolidate its position on institutional structures for sustainable development, finance
and trade, technology transfer, climate change, and access to and benefit-sharing from genetic resources.
She emphasized the importance of promoting NEPAD and, in particular, its environmental component at the
World Summit. She called for the highest possible attendance of ministers at the Summit, adding that

AMCEN should emerge as a catalyst for implementing and monitoring the targets of both Agenda 21 and the
Summit.

the United Nations Environment Programme/Global Environment Facility (UNEP/GEF) medium-sized
project on the Development and Implementation of the Environmental Component of NEPAD, presented a
draft Framework of an Action Plan. He explained that this had been agreed on after one year’s intensive
preparation, at an AMCEN Bureau meeting in Algiers on 8 September 2001. President Abdoulaye Wade of
Senegal had presented it at the G8 meeting in Canada in June 2002. He outlined the Framework which
included four sections describing the status of the African environment, challenges, and the Environment
Action Plan for the First Decade of the Twenty-First Century. He explained that the final meeting of the
Steering Committee would be held in May and June 2003. He presented the draft Decision on the
Framework of an Action Plan for the Environment Initiative of the New Partnership for Africa’s
Development for consideration and approval by the ninth session.

34. He said there had been general agreement regarding the draft implementation plan that emphasis
should be put on the three pillars of sustainable development, poverty eradication should be the central
theme of the World Summit on Sustainable Development and the decisions of the Earth Summit and
Agenda 21 did not need re-negotiation but rather implementation. The main focus of the World Summit on
Sustainable Development was seen as implementation and action, particularly in the areas of water and
sanitation, energy, agriculture and food security, land development, biodiversity and education. There was
also agreement that there should be a special focus on Africa with NEPAD as the vehicle for
implementation. National, regional, subregional and global partnerships were increasingly important.

35. Areas of non-agreement had included the principle of common but differentiated responsibilities,
means of implementation and finances as well as international financial architecture such as the World Bank
and the International Monetary Fund. Trade issues were a further area of disagreement, including
environmentally harmful trade barriers such as agricultural subsidies. He stressed that trade was a
prerequisite for economic growth without which sustainable development was impossible. The argument
that this was an area exclusive to the World Trade Organization and thus should not be discussed at the
World Summit was challenged by the Group of G77 and China who were of the view that the World Summit
could not be silent on a matter as important as this towards economic growth and poverty reduction.

36. He called on ministers to step up the preparatory process at different levels, saying that the holding of
the Summit in Africa gave them a responsibility to communicate with the citizens of their respective
countries about the Summit. He requested ministers to pay special attention to involving other ministers in
the preparation and the negotiations of the Summit, including ministers of finance, trade, energy, health and
agriculture. He urged the highest level of participation in the Summit which promised to be a historic
occasion and a turning point for Africa.

37. A minister from a Central African country urged African countries to adopt a common position on
forests at the World Summit. He noted that the forest countries of central Africa were in agreement that
forests played an essential role in the protection of biodiversity as well as an economic and social role. The
protection of forests was thus linked to the struggle against poverty.

38. A statement was circulated from Mr. David Anderson, President of the UNEP Governing Council.
Mr. Anderson paid tribute to Uganda’s role in the Governing Council. He reported that when the G8
environment ministers had met in April 2002, they had noted the challenge of integrating the environment
into economic and social development, as well as the development targets in the Millennium Declaration.
The ministers had welcomed the innovative NEPAD. He also reported that G8 leaders, at their meeting in
Canada the previous week, had welcomed NEPAD. In approving their African Action Plan, they had
recognized that the Plan was an important step towards poverty eradication and sustainable development,
with its concentration on water resource management, economic progress and environmental protection.

39. He expressed his sincere hope that AMCEN, UNEP, GEF and other partners would continue their
collaboration to pursue common objectives at the World Summit and looked forward to the next meeting of
the UNEP Governing Council which would further the vision that the Global Ministerial Environment
Forum had agreed to at their meeting in Colombia in February 2002.

40. The representative of the World Bank, Mr. Richard Scobey, expressing the World Bank’s full support
for the strategic vision of AMCEN and the environmental initiative of NEPAD, explained the new
environmental strategy for Africa which had been launched by the Bank. This was designed to integrate the
environment into poverty reduction at the national level in line with the Millennium Development Goals.
The bank’s efforts were focused in three critical areas, enhancing the quality of life, growth, and the regional
and global commons. The bank would be using various tools to support the implementation of these
priorities: several means of financing, including International Development Aid, Global Environment
Facility financing, and a number of analytical and advisory activities nationally to ensure that environment
was integrated into Poverty Reduction Strategy Papers. In addition, the Bank was launching several new
programmes targeted at Africa. These included the Africa Stockpiles Programme and the Bio-Carbon Fund
and Community Development Carbon Fund.

41. The resident representative of United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), Mr. Daouda Touré,
recognizing that Africa was the only continent where poverty was still increasing, was nonetheless heartened
to see the enthusiasm following the launch of NEPAD. He pointed to the World Summit as an opportunity
to renew the commitment to integrate environment and development, citing the need for clearly defined
action plans to enhance national capacity for economic growth. He said UNDP encouraged the
establishment of institutional mechanisms at all levels to mainstream environment into policy making and
budgeting. He expressed UNDP’s full support for AMCEN’s strategy to implement the programme coming
from the World Summit. Referring to UNDP’s programme, he announced that UNDP had launched
Capacity 2015 to assist countries in capacity-building to meet the Millennium Development Goals. He
announced that UNDP would commit itself at the World Summit to providing support in four key areas of
the environment for poverty eradication: water, energy, dry land management, and conservation and
sustainable use of biodiversity.

42. The Director-General of the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), Mr. Claude Martin, expressed
WWF’s perspectives on the environmental component of NEPAD. Echoing the contribution of a number of
ministers, WWF was convinced of the need to incorporate the establishment of viable protected areas of
forests in Africa into the environmental component of NEPAD. He said that marine protected areas, which
played an important role in economies, should also be included as priority areas. Addressing the threat
Africa faced from toxic chemicals, he pointed to the relatively low total cost for clearing Africa of its
stockpiles of obsolete pesticides and proposed the adoption of a stockpiles programme within NEPAD which
would deal comprehensively with the issue.

43. The civil society representative from the Advocates’ Coalition for Development and Environment,
recognizing the proximity of the AMCEN meeting to the World Summit, urged ministers to ensure that the
Johannesburg Plan of Action would contain specific and time-bound commitments. He pressed for the
AMCEN ministerial declaration to committing civil society representatives on national delegations, and to
instruct the AMCEN secretariat to convene an African conference of civil society organizations to contribute
to the environment initiative of NEPAD.

45. The incoming vice-president of the AMCEN Bureau, the environment minister of Mauritius, said that
the forthcoming Heads of State summit in Durban, which would transform OAU into the African Union, was
of critical importance for Africa. AMCEN had been and would remain the authority responsible for the
environment in Africa although the way in which it would interact with NEPAD had yet to be decided upon.
AMCEN had a considerable task in ensuring that the outcomes of the World Summit on Sustainable




                                                                                                               9

Development were correctly implemented. The Summit would deal with the future of the continent and
AMCEN must be more effective and organized in order to ensure that Africa spoke with one voice.

46. It was noted that, with regard to the negotiations at the Summit, Africa did not take an independent
position as it negotiated within the context of the Group of G77 and China. He stressed the need, therefore,
for Africa to participate in the Group of G77 and China meetings in order to ensure that Africa’s position
was captured by the Group of G-77 and China.

47. The minister of Côte d’Ivoire noted that it was imperative to develop and to strengthen the
environmental management structures under AMCEN. AMCEN’s resources needed bolstering to support its
heavy responsibility as the policy making environmental authority for Africa. There was a need for
AMCEN to report on its activities in the areas of policy implementation and environmental management to
all AMCEN sessions and to strengthen the follow-up structures of environmental management. He felt that
priority should be given to the management and conservation of forests, particularly equatorial forests that
were threatened with desertification. He said that his country intended to organize a meeting on forests with
the support of the World Wide Fund for Nature. He noted that there was a need for a resource mobilization
mechanism for AMCEN and that reports on the status of payments to AMCEN should be made available to
the Conference. He urged all States to ratify international legal instruments, including the Convention for
Cooperation in the Protection and Development of the Marine and Coastal Environment of the West and
Central African Region (Abidjan Convention), and called upon countries to pay their contributions toward
this.

48. One minister stressed that one of the most important functions of AMCEN was to ensure that Africa
spoke with one voice on all international environmental matters. He noted that Africa had no voice and no
visibility at some international negotiations as it was not present to engage with counterparts from other
areas of the world. AMCEN’s role, therefore, was also to give a voice to Africa. This required a firm
commitment from AMCEN to ensure that there was a team to represent the continent of Africa at all
international negotiations pertaining to the environment. He pointed out that full support should be given to
those countries with equatorial forests because the preservation of equatorial forests and their sustainable
development for social and economic progress was a concern to the whole of Africa. He requested the
minister of Cote d’Ivoire to extend the invitation to the meeting on forests to the members of AMCEN. He
agreed that the issue of forests should be incorporated into the Summit implementation plan and into
NEPAD. He noted that there would be a meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on
International Trade in Endangered Species of Flora and Fauna (CITES) in 2002 in Santiago, Chile. He
emphasized the need for Africa to speak with one voice at that meeting. He stressed the need for AMCEN to
be strengthened and noted that the linkages between AMCEN and the African Union would be clarified at
the OAU Summit in Durban the following week. He requested that ministers of environment find an
opportunity to meet informally amongst themselves to discuss environmental policies on the continent at the
political level prior to the World Summit on Sustainable Development.

49. Another minister stressed the need for AMCEN to have its own secretariat for permanent contact with
each State. It was very important to mention the particularity of each region, for example, the problem of
desertification in countries situated in the Horn of Africa. He noted that the greatest obstacle to development
in Africa was lack of resources and cited the problems that some States experienced in the implementation of
environmental conventions.

50. It was stressed that AMCEN was the technical and political instrument that would lead Africa towards
sustainable development and AMCEN must be strengthened, with particular emphasis on its implementation
mechanism.

51. Under this agenda item, the President of Senegal and Coordinator of the Environment Component of             Formatted: Indent: Left: 0", First line: 0",
NEPAD, Mr. Abdoulaye Wade, gave a presentation on the environment component of NEPAD. He                         Numbered + Level: 1 + Numbering Style: 1, 2,

responsibility of development issues, with concrete programmes and projects, according to an integrated,
participatory and dynamic approach in order to ensure the sustainability of development actions through the
improvement of the living conditions of the people. He noted that the Africa Environment Outlook
developed by UNEP reported that the conditions of natural habitats and fragile ecosystems had deteriorated,
leading to the reduction of biodiversity. There were high levels of exploitation of resources such as
freshwater, forests and coastal and marine resources that continued to be used at rates that exceeded their
viable replenishment rate. The degradation of soils and natural or man-made environmental disasters as well
as invasive species continued to pose serious problems in Africa. On the whole, environmental degradation
compromised the prospects of combating poverty, economic growth and sustainable development in Africa.
Measures aimed at boosting the region’s economies and at eradicating poverty should therefore promote
environmental sustainability.

52. NEPAD had recommended the putting in place and adoption of an environmental initiative in order to           Formatted: Indent: Left: 0", First line: 0",

environment and to ensure the utilization of their natural resources in partnership with the international
community, in accordance with the commitment contained in the United Nations Millennium Declaration.

of the implementation of NEPAD. The priority areas of intervention and activity programmes were the
control of degradation of soils, drought and desertification, the conservation of wetlands in Africa, the
prevention and control of invasive species, the conservation and sustainable use of coastal and marine
resources, the fight against the negative impacts of climate change in Africa and the conservation and
management of transboundary natural resources – freshwater, biodiversity, forests and plant genetic
resources.

54. The Environmental Action Plan was a living document whose implementation required a long-term                Formatted: Indent: Left: 0", First line: 0",
approach. It would be implemented in harmony with the other components of NEPAD, relying on the                  Numbered + Level: 1 + Numbering Style: 1, 2,

commitments agreed by the international community in the Millennium Declaration and the Monterrey
Consensus on development financing, additional financial resources were required. To this end, a meeting
of donors, with the participation of bilateral and multilateral financial institutions, including the Global
Environment Facility (GEF), would be called immediately after the adoption of the Action Plan during the
special session of AMCEN in 2003 to mobilize the additional financial resources required to implement the
Action Plan.

55. After Mr. Wade’s presentation, a representative of the business community noted that it was globally         Formatted: Indent: Left: 0", First line: 0",

                                                  Annex I

            KAMPALA DECLARATION ON THE ENVIRONMENT FOR DEVELOPMENT

       Deeply concerned that Africa is the only continent in the world where poverty is projected to rise
during the twenty-first century with far-reaching implications for its environment and African people due to
the vulnerability of the continent, in particular the least developed countries, to global environmental
changes including climate change and desertification,

       Deeply concerned also about the increasing environmental threats facing the African continent and
their adverse social, cultural and economic impacts,

      Noting with concern the increasing number and frequency of emergency and crisis situations in
African countries, particularly in countries which continue to be devastated by natural disasters such as
volcanic eruptions and extreme weather phenomena such as floods and droughts, threatening economic and
food security and political stability,

      Welcoming the establishment of the African Union,

       Welcoming the adoption in 2001 of the New Partnership for Africa’s Development as a common
African vision and agreed platform to address the challenges facing Africa with a view to achieving
sustainable development for the benefit of present and future generations,

       Noting with satisfaction the significant progress that the African Ministerial Conference on the
Environment has achieved since its inception in 1985 as the political body for environmental advocacy and
leadership in the region,

      Acknowledging the contribution towards addressing African environmental challenges of the first
Africa Environment Outlook report launched on 4 July 2002,

     Noting also with satisfaction the positive role played by regional, subregional and national bodies in
promoting sustainable development in Africa, particularly during the consultative process in preparation for
the World Summit on Sustainable Development,

       Further noting the role played by international organizations, non-governmental organizations, the
private sector and financial development institutions in promoting sustainable development in Africa,

      Bearing in mind the fact that success in achieving global sustainable development will ultimately
depend upon development and implementation of sound and cost-effective national response policies and
measures, good environmental governance, effective participation by civil society and collection and
exchange of quality data and information on the environment for use by national decision makers,

      Noting with concern that there are limited financial resources to implement fully the programme of
work of the African Ministerial Conference on the Environment for 2000-2004,

      Noting also the lack of adequate capacity for the African countries to implement multilateral
environmental agreements relevant to Africa particularly the African annex of the United Nations
Convention to Combat Desertification in Tthose countries Experiencing Serious Drought and/or
Desertification, particularly in Africa,

       Recalling the United Nations Millennium Declaration adopted on 18 September 2000 in which the
international community committed itself to supporting Africa in achieving sustainable development and
environmental protection,




                                                                                                            13
UNEP/AMCEN/9/xx2

       Recalling also the commitments made by the international community in Doha, in December 2001,
and at the United Nations Conference on Finance and Development held in Monterrey in March 2002,

      Recalling also the commitments made at the G8 summit held in Kananaskis, Canada, in June 2002,
aimed at supporting the New Partnership for Africa’s Development,

       Noting that the World Summit on Sustainable Development will be held in Africa, providing a unique
opportunity to forge a new partnership between Africa and its partners, based on Chapter 8 of the
Johannesburg Plan of Action on New Partnership for Africa’s Development as well as the shared vision to
make the World Summit on Sustainable Development a summit of implementation and concrete action,
particularly in the areas of water and sanitation; energy; agriculture and food security; land development;
biodiversity and education,

      Emphasizing the inextricable linkages between environmental management, poverty eradication and
development.

       Emphasizing also that an integrated, democratic institutional framework at the local, national, regional
and international level is essential for achieving sustainable development,

       We, the African Ministers of Environment, having met in Kampala on 4 and 5 July 2002, at the ninth
session of the African Ministerial Conference on the Environment, guided by:

       (a)     The strategic vision of Mr. Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, President of the Republic of Uganda, on
the environmental challenges facing Africa and, in particular, on issues related to poverty eradication and its
relation to trade, energy and water presented on 4 July 2002 at the opening of the meeting;

       (b) The vision of Mr. Abdoulaye Wade, President of the Republic of Senegal, as outlined in his
