On 8th November, the President of the Senate, Teresa Efua Asangono, granted an audience to the Deputy Regional Coordinator of the Central Africa Parliamentary Network, Jean Jacques Zam, accompanied by his counterparts from the Democratic Republic of Congo, Chad and Cameroon.
The meeting, which took place in the presence of the Second Vice-President, Augustin Nze Nfumu, among other members of the Senate Table, allowed the leader of the Upper Chamber, Teresa Efua Asangono, and her opposite number, Jean Jacques Zam, to look at various aspects regarding sustainable development for ecosystems in the countries of Central Africa.
They also spoke about climate change and its consequences. Along these lines, the Deputy Regional Coordinator of REPAR is urging the international community, and in particular western countries, to seek mechanisms to protect the ecosystems of the Congo Basin.
Efua Asangono and Jean Jacques Zam consider it important to raise awareness in parliaments, as legitimate representatives of the people, so that they can help the Government implement environmental programmes.
