The Ministry of Environment is currently finalizing the framework of Egypt’s plan for green transformation with the aim at helping all sectors adopt green transformation policies, such as expanding sustainability and eco-tourism. Minister of Environment Yasmine Fouad held a meeting with the World Bank delegation to discuss the latest developments in the preparation of the Country Climate and Development Report (CCDR)
Both sides tackled areas of interest, including water management and agriculture and how Egypt has taken certain measures to improve irrigation and water management methods.
They also discussed climate change’s effects on water, food security, the economic and social aspects, besides opportunities to engage the private sector in supporting Egypt to improve energy efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions from the industrial and transportation sectors.
With a bright career in child protection and an interest in social transformation, Fouad’s two cents are worth a lot. He also has a master’s degree in Education and International Development.
