Former President of Montenegro Filip Vujanovic participated in the Forum on ecology and climate changes
Former President of Montenegro Filip Vujanovic participated in the Ecological Civilization Forum of the 2020 United Nations Conference on Biodiversity (Phase 1). Former President Vujanovic took part in the discussion "Banking Financial Institutions Supporting Biodiversity Conservation." This theme forum was co-organized by the China Banking Association, the National Institute of Development and Strategy Research of Renmin University of China, and the United Nations Development Program. In his opening remarks, Former Montenegrin President stressed:

The crisis of environmental sustainability has been drastically increased. Disastrous impacts of climate change and variability, along with the present deterioration of biodiversity reaching an unprecedented rate in human history, make the future of our planet uncertain.

We need a fast and profound transformative change addressing the interdependent and mutually reinforcing crises of biodiversity loss, climate change and health in an integrated manner. The complete and prompt transformation of economic development must enable the transition to a new model structured around innovative technological solutions. That turning point should lead to the elimination of our economy dependence on fossil fuels; decoupling natural resources use and environmental impacts from economic growth and halting the biodiversity loss.

I firmly believe in the capacity of humanity to undertake such a green transformation to which we committed by adopting the UN Agenda for Sustainable Development by 2030. Even a very small contribution of each country means everything in sustaining the life we know on our planet. Determined and courageous political decisions based on a science-policy interface are of utmost importance for the success of the forthcoming 15th UNCBD COP and 26th UNFCCC COP.

Science must be allowed to lead us in that direction. The vision and initiatives aimed at setting global ecological civilization construction of the Renmin University of China and its National Academy of Development and Strategy is a great example of the transformation needed for achieving the shared sustainable future of mankind.
