  • Employing women fulfills the need to expand environmental inspections

JEDDAH: The General Authority for Meteorology and Environment Protection has started employing women in environmental inspection teams, said its president Dr. Khalil bin Musleh Al-Thaqafi.
This is in line with a decree to support environmental inspection and assessment to reduce pollution, safeguard public health and improve quality of life, he added. Employing women fulfills the need to expand environmental inspections, he said.
The authority, with the support of the environment, water and agriculture minister, is working to provide environmental sustainability under the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 reform plan, Al-Thaqafi added.
