29 September 2020 - Last week, I took part with my colleague Vice-President Dubravka Šuica in an event organised jointly with UNICEF. The aim was to send an SOS to policy-makers around the world, asking them to give highest priority to schools in their plans to reopen their economies. A decisive issue for our common future.
A shipment of GPS trackers was handed over to the Service on Countering Illicit Drug Turnover of the Ministry of Interior of the Kyrgyz Republic. The equipment was purchased and donated by the project “EU Action against Drugs and Organized crime (EU-ACT)”.
Партия GPS-трекеров была передана Службе по борьбе с незаконным оборотом наркотиков МВД Кыргызстана. Оборудование было закуплено и предоставлено проектом ЕС "Меры ЕС по вопросам противодействия наркотикам и организованной преступности".
For 30 years, the development of the Kyrgyz Republic has been aimed at achieving economic growth, mainly through the intensive use of natural resources. The depletion of natural capital due to active exploitation has been exacerbated by poor management that prevents ecosystems from recovering. In recent years, it has become apparent that further movement towards economic growth, without due consideration for environmental and social factors, poses a threat to both current and future generations.
