Some 180 NGOs wrote to the Prime Minister in an open letter asking that the protection of natural resources, the environment, and the climate be represented in the incoming government by an independent ministry, according to profitline.hu.
In the next cycle of government, the country will have to face threats such as the war in Ukraine, the economic and energy crisis, and the biodiversity and climate crisis. Another epidemic cannot be ruled out either, the letter read.
In such circumstances, the responsible policy must place much greater emphasis on the protection of the environment in the government's strategy, taking into account the aspects of the protection and conservation of natural resources in the decisions of all economic and social sectors, the Hungarian Ornithological and Nature Conservation, the Association of Nature Conservationists, and WWF Hungary said.
