Machnouk agrees with committees of civil society to form crisis cell

NNA – Environment Minister Mohammad Machnouk held on Friday a meeting with committees of civil society. They decided to form a crisis cell to deal with the problem of solid waste.

Machnouk stressed the importance of making an effort to find a sustainable solution to the waste problem.

“Despite the faultiness of the temporary solution chosen by the Cabinet to export trash, the Ministry of Environment must go through with it,” he said, adding that the focus should be less on debating the export solution and more on finding permanent solutions.
