The Friends of the Environment Center of the Ministry of Sports and Youth held an awareness lecture about sustainable development under the theme of better community with sustainable thinking.

The event brought together a large number of the center's female affiliates within a series of awareness and environmental lectures held by the center.

Presented by Maha Freja, the lecture provided an overview of sustainable development and its significance in enhancing living standards. It focused on upgrading and managing production techniques to prevent the depletion of natural resources.

Freja indicated that Qatar has adopted sustainable development as a core pillar within its national strategy 2030 and thereafter embarked on carrying out numerous national projects that include all forms of infrastructure and development, whether agricultural, industrial, or mineral, with a great emphasis on conserving the environment for the next generation.

The launch of smart city projects such as Lusail and Msheireb Downtown Doha is intended to combine eco-friendly technologies and urban planning in pursuit of achieving the highest environmental standards, Freja pointed out.

She added that protection of biodiversity is among the top priorities of sustainable development adopted by Qatar, as the state has launched multiple programmes that aim to protect the environment, in addition to diversifying and conserving its resources to achieve sustainable development, primarily the protection of endangered plant species, Qatari mainland rehabilitation, the endangered hawksbill sea turtle protection projects, the establishment of the Al-Reem Biosphere Reserve within the Man and the Biosphere Programme (MAB) of UNESCO, whale shark protection, and the dugong protection project, as well as species of large, long-lived marine mammal that live off the coast of Qatar.
