ABU DHABI - Addressing the challenges posed by climate change, focusing on monitoring and ensuring air quality, implementing measures towards better water resources management, highlighting habits on habitats and biodiversity, and effective waste management are ourcurrent priority areas, according to Dr. Richard Perry, Executive Director –Environmental Information, Science and Outreach Sector, at the Environment Agency -Abu Dhabi (EAD).
Dr. Perry was offering a presentation at a workshop that was organized at Masdar Institute of Science and Technology, an independent, research-driven graduate-level university focused on advanced energy and sustainable technologies. More than 30 experts, faculty and students attended the event that brought out the various aspects of Abu Dhabi’s environment program.
Dr Steve Griffiths, Executive Director of Institute Initiatives, Masdar Institute, said: “Masdar Institute is pioneering advanced energy and sustainable technologies and therefore is deeply concerned with environmental sustainability. The presentation by Dr. Perry not only provided insights regarding Abu Dhabi’s Environment Vision 2030, but also offered students an opportunity to learn about internship and employment prospects at the Environment Agency Abu Dhabi. We thank the UAE’s wise leadership for making environmental protection a nationally recognized issue that may be the source of future employment for our students.”
