As Minister for International Development Cooperation and Climate, and Deputy Prime Minister, Isabella Lövins goal is to modernise Sweden’s development cooperation so that it can tackle the challenges facing the world. Sweden has an important role at international level in pushing for sustainable development that benefits everyone, she says.
In June 2017 Sweden and Fiji hosted the Ocean Conference that adopted a Call for Action where all 193 UN Member States agree to a set of measures to reverse the decline of the sea. Over 1 300 voluntary commitments were made in order to save the world’s oceans.
“I truly believe this conference will constitute the gamechanger we so desperately need. Now the work really begins to save our oceans”, said Isabella Lövin as The Ocean Conference concluded.
Isabella Lövin will join the opening ceremony of The Stockholm Act, August 21.
