The Minister of Environment stated that the meeting discussed enhancing cooperation between the two sides in the fields of investing and preserving natural reserves and biodiversity through exchanging experiences.
Fouad emphasized the depth of the historical and fraternal relations that bind the two countries, stressing the Egyptian state’s keenness to provide all aspects of support to the Jordanian side.
The meeting reviewed the experiences of the two countries in the field of waste management, where the Egyptian minister emphasized working on developing the best ways to integrate the private sector into that system.
The Jordanian Minister of the Environment expressed his aspiration for the Egyptian experience in the field of reserves, and he welcomed cooperation with the Egyptian side and presented the Jordanian experience in this regard.
Al-Radaydah also called upon the Egyptian side to support Jordan’s initiative related to the “interconnected climate and refugees” that Jordan launched to the Arab nations with the aim of helping countries that suffer from the consequences of climate change and at the same time have waves of the influx of refugees, which has led to a significant increase in the population.
Fouad’s agenda in Jordan includes a field visit to the Al-Mawy Reserve for Nature and Wildlife in Jerash Governorate, in northern Jordan, to see the experience of establishing and managing this type of project.
