DUBAI,14th June, 2017 (WAM) -- The UAE Council for Climate Change and Environment has held its third meeting, presided over by Dr. Thani bin Ahmed Al Zeyoudi, Minister of Climate Change and Environment.
The meeting was attended by council members from local and federal authorities and the private sector.
Addressing the participants, Dr. Thani bin Ahmed Al Zeyoudi, said, "The establishment of the UAE Council for Climate Change and Environment stems from the insightful vision of our wise leadership. It is also a part of the UAE’s efforts to adopt international best practices to underline the concept of a sustainable lifestyle towards preserving our local environment for the current and future generations."

He pointed out that the council seeks to find solutions for pressing environmental challenges while ensuring economic growth and protection of cultural and civilizational heritage. The council aims to develop and implement a comprehensive and ambitious plan for the country to serve as a role model in the region for climate change action and environment protection.
