Published

Minister for Environment and Climate Isabella Lövin received the Belarusian Minister of Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Andrei Khudyk on 22 May 2019. Mr Khudyk and the Belarusian delegation visited Stockholm and Borlänge to study Swedish waste management experience and discuss sustainable development.

Isabella Lövin and Andrei Khudyk discussed the Sustainable Development Goals, reducing CO2 emissions and improving the Baltic Sea environment.

Both ministers concluded that Sweden and Belarus have good cooperation in the environmental area. This is implemented through Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) support to development projects in Belarus, cooperation on radiation protection, the Eastern Partnership, the Eastern Europe Energy Efficiency and Environmental Partnership (E5P) and other instruments. The ministers welcomed the resumption of Sida’s presence in Belarus and hoped that this would strengthen the conditions for cooperation on the Sustainable Development Goals in the Baltic Sea region.

Ms Lövin hoped that Belarus could benefit from Sweden’s experiences and underlined that high environmental standards and broad and inclusive cooperation with environmental organisations, local populations and the business community have been particularly important for Sweden’s environmental successes.
