Budapest (MTI) – The President’s Office added a new directorate reponsible for environmental sustainability, as of January 1, Hungary’s President Janos Ader announced on Monday.

Ader told a press conference that the new directorate will be headed by Csaba Korosi, former UN ambassador.

He said reasons for setting up the new unit were both long term and short term: in the long run, sustainability is a cause to be represented beyond governing cycles, and in the short term, Hungary must help work on a new Kyoto agreement to be drafted in Paris this year. The agreement, to be penned by December 2015, should contain commitments on controlling climate change, Korosi said earlier.
