KABUL (BNA): Dr. Zain al-Abidin Aabid, the Deputy Head of the National Environmental Protection Authority (NEPA), discussed the impact of climate change in Afghanistan with Mr. Terje Magnussønn Watterdal, the Country Director of the Norwegian Committee for Afghanistan.
According to a statement from NEPA, the meeting focused on examining the environmental damage Afghanistan has suffered due to climate change. The Norwegian Committee, which operates in the areas of food security, natural resources, and agriculture in Afghanistan, expressed its commitment to collaborate with the national administration for environmental protection to mitigate the negative impacts of climate change.
