The environmental manager at the Monrovia City Corporation (MCC) has disclosed that the MCC is collaborating with the Environment Protection Agency (EPA) to set up a waste data station in the country.
Manager Sennay Carlor, III says the waste data station is intended to collect greenhouse gas emissions from waste that will go a long way to providing a better understanding of climate change across the country.
He made the disclosure recently at the launch of the Second State of the Environment Report of Liberia held at a local hotel in Sinkor, Monrovia.
He notes that two key documents for environmental planning and management are critical in rolling out preservation and protection of the environment in Liberia.
According to him, the MCC which deals with the waste management component of the environment has been challenged over the years for logistical support across the country except for Monrovia.
He says with these two instruments available, international partners should help MCC with waste equipment to ensure proper disposal of waste across the country.
Carlor stresses protection of the environment is essential for the transformation of the nation in spite of situations like climate change, sea erosion, and forest degradation, among others, that pose a serious threat to the environment should be given urgent attention.
He explains that Liberia is committed to fighting climate change and with the help of international partners and relevant agencies of government working along with EPA to minimize the impact of Climate Change. https://thenewdawnliberia.com/mcc-besieges-newdawn-newspaper/Editing by Jonathan Browne
