MARRAKECH: The Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan Foundation is prepared to provide assistance to ease the suffering of people affected by the consequences of climate change, the director of the Foundation, Mohammed Haji Khouri stated on the sidelines of the 22nd session of the Conference of the Parties (COP-22) on climate change.

The UAE has created the Ministry of Climate Change and Environment as it recognises the significance of climate change, he said in a statement to Emirates News Agency (WAM).

"Without a doubt, humanitarian work is not the only sector being affected by climate change. All states, societies and individuals should work together to curb pollution," he said and added that climate change has led to increasing poverty, hunger and, in some states, famines, as well as the ozone depletion, reduced biodiversity and the spread of contagious diseases.

The strategy being pursued by the foundation includes support to the health and education sectors as well as medical science research.

The UAE humanitarian foundation has supported the US-based MD Anderson Cancer Centre at the University of Texas with a US$150 million grant, Khouri noted. – Emirates News Agency, WAM -http://www.wam.ae/en/news/emirates/1395302834405.html
