The President’s Senior Adviser on National Security and Chief of Presidential Staff Sagala Ratnayake said sustainable economic development goals cannot be accomplished without taking steps to mitigate climate change.  

He said it at a function to mark the planting of 10,000 tree saplings programme, organized by the LEO Youth Vision 2048 Club and the LEO Club at the Royal College, Colombo on March 23.  

 This programme was organized in view of President Ranil Wickremesinghe’s birthday, which fell yesterday, and the required plants were distributed to the main schools of the Colombo District.  

LEO members, including Senula Dilana, President of LEO Youth Vision 2048, coordinated this programme. 
Mr. Sagala Ratnayake emphasized the importance of working with understanding and commitment to mitigate climate change, as it contributes to economic development.
