Head of Youth Love Egypt foundation meets with Minister of Agriculture

CAIRO – 24 October 2021:  The head of the Youth Love Egypt  (YLE) Foundation Ahmed Fathy and the Egyptian Minister of Agriculture Sayyed Quseir discussed a national project aimed at planting half-million trees along the Nile.

 The meeting came ahead of Egypt’s participation at the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow on 31 October – 12 November 2021, said the YLE in a statement on Sunday.

 The Nile Tree Project, which was launched by the YLE at World Environment Day this year, aims at planting 0.5 million trees along all newly-lined irrigational canals on the two banks of the Nile.

 The project comes as one of the programs that aim at adapting to climate change via contributing to reducing carbon emissions and consequently it will help reduce the high temperature, the YLE added.
