MENA , Monday 9 Sep 2019

Egypt's Environment Minister Yasmin Fouad said on Sunday that the ministry, under orders from President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi, is keen on developing the country's natural resources, which are the basis of any comprehensive development process.

The ministry is also keen on developing nature reserves at Ras Mohamed protectorate, she said during a meeting with students from the National Defence College, one of the faculties at the Nasser Military Academy.

She said Ras Mohamed protectorate is a national park and an integral part of Sinai land that is rich in a wide range of vertebrate and invertebrate underwater species.

She talked about the ministry's plan to develop nature reserves, saying it is based on the rational management of natural assets, honouring regional and international environmental obligations and laying down the necessary mechanisms to preserve biological diversity and face climate change.
