The Second World Ecological Safety Assembly in Bali

From 9th to 12th of December, 2012, the Second World Ecological Safety Assembly took place in Bali, Indonesia, a renowned tourist city. It was co-hosted by International Ecological Safety Collaborative Organization, the House of Representatives of the Republic of Indonesia, Climate Change Committee of ICAPP, Government of Bali, Indonesia, China Foundation for International Studies and the Sukarno Center, Indonesia. Over 600 participants from more than 80 countries attended the assembly, including over 100 leaders of political parties, parliaments, countries and international organizations. The assembly lasted two days during which the participants held in-depth discussion closely around the theme of “Survival and Development” and voted through the productive World Ecological Civilization Declaration and Ecological Safety Action Plan.

At nine o’clock, December 9th, 2012, with the striking sound of a gong, H.E. Mr Sok An, Deputy Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Cambodia, handed over the flag of the 1st WESA to H.E. Mr Marzuki Alie, Chairman of the 2nd World Ecological Safety Assembly and Speaker of the House of Representatives of Republic of Indonesia, which symbolized the opening of the Second World Ecological Safety Assembly in the exquisite coastal city.

At the beginning of the assembly, H.E. Mr. Sok An spoke highly of the new progress of world ecological safety construction made since the First World Ecological Safety Assembly and the effort made by IESCO during the past two years. He also placed high hopes on the Second World Ecological Safety Assembly. He said that the global ecological system is an inseparable organic integrity. Ecological and environment issues are transnational and global, thus ecological safety is closely related to national security and international security, which sets a challenge for the traditional view of sovereignty. Therefore, it is necessary to maintain ecological safety, ensure human survival and promote international collaboration. The Kingdom of Cambodia will further strengthen cooperation with IESCO and make more contributions to the sustainable development of the human society.

Mr. Marzuki Alie, Speaker of the House of Representatives of Republic of Indonesia, said in his speech that the conference would exert significant influence on the world ecological safety construction and make important contribution to achieving the UN Millennium Development Goals. He said that the conference was a milestone in Indonesia’s progress of ecological safety construction, showing that the ecological undertaking of Indonesia had reached an international level, and the people of Indonesia were visionary in the ecological development in the country and would make great efforts and contribute to world ecological safety.

International leaders who delivered speeches at the assembly include Nassir Abdulaziz Al-Nasser, President of the 66th Session of the United Nations General Assembly, and High Representative for the UN Alliance of Civilizations; José De Venecia, Former Speaker of the House of Representatives of Republic of the Philippines, and Founding Chairman of International Conference of Asian Political Parties (ICAPP); José Manuel Ramos-Horta, Former President of the Democratic Republic of East Timor, and Recipient of Nobel Peace Prize; James Mancham, Founding President of Republic of Seychelles; Artur N. Chilingarov, Representative of the President of the Russian Federation for International Cooperation in Arctic and Antarctic Affairs;  Sheila Copps, Former Deputy Prime Minister of Canada, and A. A. Ngurah Oka Ratmadi, Head of the House of Representatives of Bali Province of Republic of Indonesia.

At the end of the opening ceremony, H.E. Mr. Sok An launched the "6+1 Mekong River Ecological Safety Forum". The global ecological safety construction has entered a new era thence.

During the following two days, leaders of political parties and parliaments, heads of governments, ministers, experts and leaders of international organizations held productive dialogues around the four themes of the assembly, i.e., Resource Scarcity and Sustainable Development, Urban Disaster Prevention/Reduction and International Cooperation, Ecological Safety Legislation and Practice, Climate Change Effects and Countermeasures.

During the assembly, Herman Achille Van Rompuy, Chairman of the Council of Europe and Alexander Zhukov, First Deputy Chairman of the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation sent congratulation letters to the Second World Ecological Safety Assembly respectively.
