Qatar To Set Some Environmental Goals

green-future-qatarQatar’s environmental goals and ambitions will be discussed at a national seminar organised by the General Secretariat for Development Planning (GSDP) on January 27 at the Four Seasons Hotel, according to the Gulf Times.

The seminar’s aims are twofold. The first is to identify and discuss issues and challenges related to achieving the environmental goals of the Qatar National Vision 2030, reports the paper.

The second objective is to provide ideas and a framework to Qatar’s second Human Development Report, which GSDP is preparing in partnership with United Nations Development Programme. The seminar will concentrate on the themes such as:

  • Qatar’s sustainable development challenges
  • marine environment
  • water security
  • climate change and their human development issues.

Ibrahim Ibrahim from the GSDP is set to make the opening speech before four panels named after the above themes. 

The QNV 2030, launched by HH the Heir Apparent Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani in October last year, builds a bridge between the present and the future and envisages a vibrant and prosperous country with economic and social justice for all.
