The following guiding questions are aligned to each of the three main Leadership Dialogues planned for the Stockholm+50 meeting and will be integrated into the overall consultation agenda and report. Please refer to the question number in your comment.

  1. LD1: Reflecting on the urgent need for actions to achieve a healthy planet and prosperity of all:
     
    1. How can we restore and regenerate a positive relationship with nature? List 2 or 3 good practices and pathways that you would like to see scaled up to enable a move to a healthy planet?
       
    2. What are the actions that you (your group) would take to scale up the change towards a healthy planet? What policies/structures need to be in place for you to take such action?
       
    3. How could marginalised and vulnerable groups benefit from policies and initiatives designed to restore a more sustainable and resilient relationship with nature (that mitigates nature risks)?
       
    4. How can we safeguard the rights of people and nature, including among others, indigenous peoples and local communities, environmental defenders, women, youth, future generations?
       
    5. What are the new or prioritized set of metrics and indicators needed for tracking our progress towards a healthier and more prosperous planet?

I would like to comment on the first question. I think to restore our relationship with nature, it would be better to scale up initiatives like e-waste recycling and electric mobility in Rwanda. By properly disposing of e-waste, we will reduce the amount of it that goes to landfills and going electric will reduce the amount of carbon emissions and help the country achieve its climate action targets.

3. Marginalised and vulnerable groups could benefit from established policies by firstly acquiring enough knowledge on climate change. This is something local or higher authorities can look into. They can consider extending accessible resources through carrying out or encouraging workshops or programmes centred on climate change. This will help these people to know and understand deeper what climate change is, its impacts and consequences, thus allowing them to now understand why policies are there and why they should be respected in order to restore and preserve mother nature.

1. For the world to become a healthy planet, there is a need for people at all levels to collaborate in terms of setting and implementing policies and initiatives designed to tackle climate change. This ranges from being on the same line on where Rwanda should be in the next two decades and the efforts that need to be scaled up so as to attain such long-term target.

3. Marginalised and vulnerable groups should be considered when gathering some thoughts on the initiatives to be focused on as they acvount for a higher number of population and this also attracts the attention of young people and make them more engaged in all the projects dedicated to protect environment in in future.
