Statement of UN RC in Tanzania, Zlatan Milisic - World Environment Day
06 June 2022
World Environment Day gives us an opportunity to reflect on our accomplishments and renew our resolve in overcoming the increasingly urgent environmental challenges facing Tanzania and the world today. I am grateful to be here and congratulate the Government of UR of Tanzania and all partners in organizing many successful events promoting a sustainable environment over the past few days.
