Egypt’s Environment Minister Yasmine Fouad is set to sign the ‘Green Sharm El-Sheikh’ project, tomorrow, Tuesday. 

The project comes, as a part of a cooperation agreement between the Environment Ministry and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP).

The signing ceremony will be attended by Dr. Ali Abu Senna, head of the Environmental Affairs Agency, and a number of Foreign Ministry representatives.

It is worth mentioning that Egypt, on Sunday, declared Kharga Oasis in the New Valley Governorate in the Western Desert as the first environmentally and climate-friendly city in the country, coinciding with World Environment Day.

Last Saturday, President Abdel Fattah El Sisi called for providing Sharm El-Sheikh with all the necessary financial resources to get prepared for the Conference of the Parties (COP27), due to take place in November.

The presidential directives were given during a meeting with Mostafa Madbouly, Prime Minister, and a number of ministers, according to Presidency Spokesperson Bassam Rady.

“The meeting dealt with following up the work of the Higher Ministerial Committee to prepare for Egypt’s hosting of the COP27 World Climate Summit next November in Sharm El-Sheikh,” said Rady.

Sisi also asked concerned officials to provide all the necessary financial resources to prepare the city of Sharm El-Sheikh at the highest level and to continue the various concerned parties to strengthen their efforts to host and direct this global event in a way that reflects Egypt’s regional and international position.

Sisi stressed the country’s huge efforts to achieve green transformation, protect the environment and increase the use of clean energy through various national projects related to natural gas, electricity, solar energy, wind energy, green hydrogen, and environmentally friendly transportation.
