Dr. Mona Fouad Ibrahim, President of the International Conference on Green Climate and Smart Waste Management, stated in a statement that this is the second edition of the conference, with the goal of transferring and localising the latest global technology in the field of reducing food loss and waste, through entrepreneurs with ideas and projects that aim to improve the environmental situation, and creating environmentally friendly solutions.
She went on to say that the conference aims to achieve the twelfth goal of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, as well as Egypt's Vision 2030 for Sustainable Development, by halving the per capita share of food waste in all stages related to food, whether in production or supply chains, where it is considered. Climate change is exacerbated by unsustainable consumption and production trends.
