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.
