The Ministry of Environment, Water and Climate has implored various stakeholders in the environmental health and waste management sector to step up efforts in their mandate to attaining a clean environment as enshrined in the constitution.
While officially opening the Environmental Management Authority Waste Management Indaba, permanent secretary in the Ministry of Environment, Water and Climate Ambassador Grace Mutandiro told stakeholders that attaining a clean environment was possible.
Meanwhile speaking at the same occasion, permanent secretary in the ministry of Industry, Commerce and Enterprise Development Mrs Abigail Shonhiwa lashed out at local authorities for their failure to provide the right to clean a environment to the general citizenry.
In response, Urban Councils Association Secretary for Health Officers Forum Dr Daniel Chirundu said there was need to move towards an integrated waste management policy to alleviate the problem.
The Waste Management Indaba was attended by stakeholders from the environmental health and waste management sector, officials from various government ministries, non-governmental bodies and institutions of higher learning.
