Gaborone, Botswana, May 24-25

Our goal is to demonstrate how African nations and their investment partners understand, manage and value natural capital. We will be taking a practical, results-focused approach that will put the African nations in the driving seat and help investment partners bring support in a coordinated and coherent fashion.

 

Thank you to all the guests and delegates who participated in the Summit for Sustainability in Africa on May 24-25 in Gaborone, Botswana!

The Government of Botswana, in partnership with Conservation International (CI), announced late Friday, May 25, 2012, the endorsement of the Gaborone Declaration by ten African countries and numerous public and private sector partners from within and outside Africa. The Declaration, a set of concrete principles and development goals that soundly move the value of natural capital from the periphery to the center of development planning, is the culmination of discussions held over the two-day Summit for Sustainability in Africa, a first of its kind on the continent.

Among nations’ agreements were two key conclusions: first, lead​ers reached unanimous consensus that the historical pattern of natural resources exploitation has failed to promote sustained growth, environmental integrity and improved social capital and has even worse, been counter productive; second, they agreed that the value of natural capital, or the wealth of benefits and services provided to people by biodiversity and ecosystems such as watersheds, forests, coral reefs, and grasslands, must be fully accounted and integrated into national and corporate planning and reporting practices, policies and programs.​

The Gaborone Declaration also reaffirmed African nations’ commitments to implement all existing conventions and declarations that promote sustainable development and additionally assured that the ten countries present will commit to annual reporting on their natural capital accounting efforts.
