The Chairman of the Brazzaville Foundation names as Goodwill Ambassador for the Congo Basin Blue Fund

 

The Heads of State and Government of the Congo Basin Climate Commission meeting in Brazzaville on 29 March 2018 have decided to appoint HRH Princess Lalla Hasnaa, President of the Mohammed VI Foundation for the Protection of the Environment, Mrs Maria De Fatima Jardim, Angola’s Minister of the Environment, Mr. Lokua Kanza, Musician Artist, and Mr. Jean-Yves Ollivier, Chairman of the Brazzaville Foundation, as Goodwill Ambassadors for the Congo Basin Blue Fund.

The Brazzaville Foundation is honoured to have this opportunity to support all the countries who have signed the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on the creation of the Blue Fund, including several new countries, and to work closely with them to make the Fund a reality.

Jean-Yves Ollivier, Chairman of the Brazzaville Foundation, said:

"I am honoured and delighted to be appointed as a Goodwill Ambassador which I see as a recognition of all the work the Brazzaville Foundation has done so far. As the originator of the idea of a Congo Basin Blue Fund, the Foundation has been assisting the Commission from the outset to help establish the Fund. I look forward to redoubling our efforts to mobilise the necessary financial resources.”
