President Hifikepunye Pohamba addressed world leaders gathered in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil for the United Nations meeting on sustainable development.
The President pledged Namibia's support and commitment to carry out sustainable development programmes and to ensure a bright future for present and future generations.
The President also used the opportunity to call on world leaders to support Namibia's bid to host the Green Climate Fund Secretariat.
The fund will ensure that resources are made available to developing countries to mitigate climate change effects, threatening the livelihood of many communities.
Rio De Janeiro is a hive of activities this week as heads of states are here in Rio to reach agreement on how to make the global economy more sustainable for people and the environment.
Formally called the UN Conference on Sustainable Development, it is the largest UN summit ever organised, and comes 20 years after the original Rio Earth summit in 1992 and 40 years after a similar meeting in Stockholm, Sweden.
President Pohamba called on fellow leaders to use the opportunity to review and evaluate progress made in the past 20 years, while showing political commitment for sustainable development.
The President also shared Namibia's experience saying laws and programs were introduced to support sustainable development of the country's natural resources.
