New German Government installed today

New German Government

Power handed over to “traffic light” coalition

New German Federal Minister for Economic Cooperation and Development Svenja Schulze, former Minister for Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety, is well aware of the Alliance’s topics and interdependencies – and has advocated clearly in the past: “Prevention and control of pandemics requires commitment to nature conservation and species protection.” (Press release | BMU)

Together with her new team, including State Secretary Jochen Flasbarth, who – in person – helped launch our Alliance at IUCN’s World Conservation Congress in Marseille in September, she will no doubt continue to offer a supportive governmental backdrop to the Alliance’s work. As will Steffi Lemke the new Minister for Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection.
