President tells the world about our country's organic fertilizer effort

President Gotabhaya Rajapaksa today told UN members that Sri Lanka has taken the lead in reducing the use of synthetic fertilizers and solving health problems and reducing nitrogen pollution. That was during a conversation over video technology.

The President also participated in the Heads of State Dialogue on Development of Climate Process for Human, Earth and Prosperity convened by the President of the 76th Session of the United Nations, Abdullah Shahid.

The dialogue was chaired by UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres.

The President said that the goal was to achieve the carbon mitigation policy by 2050.

The President also stated that 2030% of the national energy requirement will be met by renewable energy by 70, adding that he also hopes to expand Sri Lanka's forest cover.

“We are moving forward with Sri Lanka's internal policy framework aimed at sustainable development. As one of its steps, we hope to address the various health problems caused by the use of artificial fertilizers and the reduction of nitrogen pollution. Through this, we hope to achieve the carbon mitigation policy by 2050. We also hope to get 2030% of our national energy requirement from renewable energy by 70. We also hope to expand the forest cover in Sri Lanka. We look forward to the exchange of technical knowledge, investment and financial support required to achieve all these goals. Developed countries must fulfill their sacrifices to heal our planet. Significant multilateral and bilateral cooperation is needed to implement climate change mitigation and utilization measures. It creates new green growth opportunities and ensures future fertility. Therefore, it is time for us to implement it. ”
