Egypt will have a big role in integrating water and climate issues globally, said Mari Pangestu — the World Bank’s managing director of development policy and partnerships.

World Bank delegation with Water Resources and Irrigation Minister Mohamed Abdel Atti on Saturday.

Pangestu lauded Egypt’s policies on adopting modern irrigation systems while probing means of boosting cooperation in this regard with the Minister of Water Resources and Irrigation Mohamed Abdel-Aty on Saturday.

Both sides coordinated the overlapping relation between water and climate on the side-lines of the fifth edition of Cairo Water Week, and the Water Pavilion that will be setup within the UN Conference of Parties on Climate Change (COP27), which will be hosted by Egypt’s Sharm El-Sheikh this November.

For his part, Abdel-Aty said that climate change is one of the most important issues worldwide nowadays, shedding light on the Egyptian state’s great efforts to counter water challenges.

Earlier, Pangestu said that the bank is keen to provide all means of support to Egypt during its presidency of the COP27 and to stimulate climate action-related efforts in Egypt and the African continent.
