Environmental Protection Minister Tamar Zandberg and United Arab Emirates Minister of Food and Water Security Mariam Al-Muhairi sign a series of agreements for cooperation in the field of environmental protection.

The agreements include joint research and development in areas relating to combating the climate crisis; protecting endangered species; protection, conservation and restoration of the marine and coastal environment; innovative approaches to waste prevention, reuse and recycling; and many others.

“The United Arab Emirates and Israel share strategic views in the field of the environment, both nationally and internationally, as part of the commitment to the Paris Agreements and the adoption of international environmental protection practices,” says Al-Muhairi.

“We anticipate that the partnership between us will be a huge step forward in efforts to strengthen environmental management,” she adds.
