The Chairman of the Higher Committee for Sheikh Zayed International Prize for Environment Dr. Mohammed Ahmed bin Fahd said that the hosting of the Environment 2001 Exhibition and Conference (Environment 2001) from February 4 to 8 in Abu Dhabi underlines the UAE's commitment to provide solutions to world environmental concerns and challenges. "Environment 2001 will encourage researchers and environmentalists to present their studies and work out scientific solutions to environmental problems,” he said. He added that the Abu Dhabi Declaration to be issued at the conference, is an important step towards achieving further co-operation and co-ordination among Arab countries on environment and protection of resources.



The award's Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) has received 230 entries from around the world, of which 46 were from Africa, 49 from Asia, 22 from North America, 10 from South America and 8 from Australia. The nominations were for all 12 categories specified by the prize committee. The 1 million US dollar prize was established by General Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Dubai Crown Prince and UAE Defence Minister, on January 31, 1999 in recognition and appreciation of the great achievements made by H. H. President Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan in the conservation and protection of the environment. The prize will be given every two years to outstanding and pioneering achievements in the fields of environment and development. (The Emirates News Agency, WAM)
