Commonwealth Secretary-General Patricia Scotland has commended the Namibian government for its leading role in addressing climate change.

The International Relations Ministry said in a statement that Namibia’s President Hage Geingob on Thursday met with Scotland at the State House, where she said Namibia set a good example by being one of the first countries in the world to sign up to the Paris Agreement.

On the issue of climate change, the Secretary-General talked about the Secretariat’s new regenerative model of development.

“This has the potential to help reverse climate change through the promotion of an integrated approach to delivering the Sustainable Development Goals, through the use of new disruptive technologies, such as carbon-capturing concrete in new buildings to create carbon sinks, and 5G technology,” she said.
