By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Prime Minister John Briceño says Belize is delivering two milestones under the Blue Bonds Agreement as we celebrate Earth Day under the theme “Invest in Our Planet”.

“The expansion of our marine protected areas and the designation of all national lands within the Belize Barrier Reef Reserve System World Heritage Site as Mangrove Reserves are significant as we further safeguard the functioning integrity of our ocean and coastal resources, which is key to the realization of a successful ocean-based economy and improved quality of lives for our people,” said Prime Minister Briceño in his Earth Day message.

Belize is among 190 around the world that observe Earth Day. Approximately a billion people are today participating in activities that included tree plantings, rallies, and clean-up campaigns.

The Prime Minister said the Government of Belize has committed to a holistic approach to its ocean and coastal resources as solutions and key elements to our national development and climate and nature ambitions.

“These two targets contribute to Belize’s commitment and the global movement towards the conservation of key areas in our ocean space and the employment of nature-based solutions as central to our national development and response to climate change,” said Prime Minister Briceño in reference to the marine protected areas and the Mangrove Reserves.

“Belize’s ocean space and associated resources continue to contribute significantly to food security, livelihoods, key economic sectors, and resiliency to the impacts of climate change,” he concluded.
