UN Secretary-General Appoints Mrs. Bio As Member of United Nations Advisory Board of Eminent Persons on Zero Waste

United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has appointed Sierra Leone First Lady Mrs. Fatima Maada Bio to serve as a member of the United Nations Advisory Board of Eminent Persons on Zero Waste.

According to Mr. Guterres, the Board has an important role to play in supporting zero-waste initiatives in the context of sustainable development.

A zero-waste approach conserves natural resources, reduces pollution from extraction, manufacturing, and disposal, and protects the health of communities by reducing pollution in the air, water, and soil by keeping toxins and waste out of landfills and incinerators.

“I look forward to the work you will undertake with fellow Board members to advance the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and I have asked the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) to work closely with you”.

Mrs. Fatima Maada Bio is a comely and cultured woman with an extraordinary perceptive bearing and unwavering allegiance to her Country and people. She has been a long-standing human rights advocate and has embarked on many programs, all geared towards human capital development, with an emphasis on women’s empowerment and protecting our children.
