President Maia Sandu Leads the Charge: Moldova Takes a Stand for a Greener Future

On the occasion of World Environment Day, observed annually on June 5, President Maia Sandu participated in the Conference on “Environmental Challenges and Sustainable Development,” organized by the Ministry of Environment. The conference focused on the pressing environmental issues facing the nation.

“Water we drink, the air we breathe, the soil in which we grow our food – our health and quality of life depend on them. Although the Republic of Moldova is a small country and may not sway the global scale when it comes to climate change, we can and must do everything in our power to care for the environment in which we live, and where our children will live,” stated the President.

Addressing a range of environmental concerns, the President highlighted the issue of unauthorized landfills, emphasizing the need for their closure and the proper management of waste through recycling and energy recovery. She also stressed the importance of treating wastewater using modern technologies, including at industrial facilities.

President Sandu also mentioned the country’s most ambitious greening initiative – the National Afforestation Program, which will bring medium- and long-term benefits for drought mitigation, water balance, and enhanced soil fertility.

In conclusion, President Maia Sandu called upon citizens to take care of our environment at home by planting forests, managing waste responsibly, and reducing air pollution.


The conference concluded with renewed commitments from the government, environmental experts, and stakeholders to collaborate and work towards a more sustainable and ecologically sound future for the Republic of Moldova.

As the nation commemorates World Environment Day, it is hoped that President Maia Sandu’s call to action will inspire individuals and communities to take proactive steps in safeguarding the environment and preserving it for future generations.
