THE Ministry of Municipality and Environment (MME) on Wednesday held a workshop on developing the national measurement, reporting and verification system for capacity building and stakeholder consultation on climate change.
The workshop was attended by a number of State entities and officials from the South Korea-based Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI).
Head of the climate change department at the ministry Abdulhadi Nasser al Marri said Qatar gives great importance to the environment and has enacted laws and regulations necessary for its preservation for future generations.
He said this event with stakeholders also aims at follow-up with the project to develop the monitoring, reporting and verification system for the inventory of greenhouse gases in Qatar.
It is an important pillar of many projects and reports that will be submitted by Qatar within the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and the ‘Paris Agreement’. This will highlight the efforts of the State and to ensure that Qatar is a leader in this area at regional and global levels.
He called for cooperation with the ministry to achieve this project as it will become a major achievement for the State and at the same time to study the current situation in an integrated manner to address climate change.
He said the ministry is exerting great efforts to achieve the environmental balance in light of the urban, economic and social progress witnessed by the State. In addition, there are efforts made by local institutions and companies to follow the environmental laws that contribute to Qatar’s efforts to address climate change.
