Egypt to receive additional funds for waste management

The country is currently promoting a project to recycle electronic and medical waste

The Global Environment Facility has sent additional funding of US$9,13 million to Egypt. It will be used to reduce emissions. The project is being implemented with the support of the World Bank, with a special focus on the recycling of electronic and medical waste.

Egypt’s Minister of Environment Yasmine Fouad said the project is in line with Egypt’s 2050 climate change strategy. This is reported by
Daily News Egypt, a partner of TV BRICS.

Senior officials in the country have repeatedly noted that Egypt aims to shift more actively to a green economy, which would also create jobs.

E-waste is the fastest growing category of solid waste worldwide. It contributes to environmental pollution by containing toxic materials that can contaminate soil, water and air.

This initiative emphasises Egypt’s commitment to sustainable practices and environmental stewardship.
