Foreign organizations urged to resume work on environmental projects

KABUL: Afghanistan’s National Environmental Protection Agency (NEPA) has urged foreign organizations to resume work on 32 small and large projects related to environmental development, a statement from the agency said Tuesday. “The international community should not politicize environmental issues. Foreign institutions should resume works on the projects in the field of environ mental improvement costing nearly 824 million U.S. dollars, which have now been suspended,” the statement quoted head of the NEPA Hafiz Azizurrahman as saying. The statement blamed climate change, drought, floods, deforestation and other similar issues to have caused environmental problems in the country. “Last year, the National Environmental Protection Agency, in cooperation with various ministries, was able to reduce air pollution in the country’s capital Kabul and other areas,” Aziz Rahman noted in the statement. The national environment agency asked companies and the public to reduce the production and use of plastics. The UN Environment Program reported more than 430 million tons of plastics are produced worldwide every year. The Kabul Times
