Just Forests calls for new NAMA-2 to secure Natural Assets/Resources

We are calling for a new Natural Assets Monitoring authority to be set up by the Government.

16th September 2009

 

After gas and oil, wood is probably the second largest traded natural resource in the world today. In order to promote the security and supply of natural assets/resources such as fresh water, timber, biodiversity, etc, which form a major part of the economic backbone of all economic development, a Natural Assets Monitoring Authority (NAMA-2), needs to be set up in countries across the globe including Ireland. We must recognise that biological diversity (which includes all living things) represents the natural wealth of the Earth. It provides the basis for life, economic development and prosperity for the whole of mankind. In order to promote the security and supply of natural assets/resources such as fresh water, timber, biodiversity, etc, which form a major part of the economic backbone of all economic development, we are calling for a new Natural Assets Monitoring Authority (NAMA-2) to be set up by government immediately.
