Dr. Abdullah Ali Al Amri, Chairman of the Environment Authority, gave a speech on the occasion, saying that cities’ sustainability can only be achieved through the application of green economies. The conference, he explained, deals with the concept of developing sustainable governorates and cities, with emphasis on natural resources.

The Secretary General of the Arab Towns Organization, Eng. Ahmed Hamad Al Subaih, gave a speech in which he stressed the need to spread the concept of green economy now that the world is facing great challenges due to climate change and fossil fuel-based industries.

Besides green economy, the conference sessions deal with the governance of sustainable cities and comprehensive management of water, food and waste in sustainable cities.
