The agreement between the Environment Public Authority (EPA) and Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research (KISR) is a significant environment conservation initiative, according to EPA chief Sheikh Abdullah Al-Sabah, saying the deal mainly comprises an “early warning system” for any increases in algae populations on Kuwait waters.

The deal is the latest in a long list of joint endeavors linking the two Kuwaiti bodies, all of which aim to protect Kuwait’s environment from any potential threats, said KISR acting director general Dr. Mane Al-Sdairawi, hailing the endeavor as a measure to preserve the country’s marine ecosystem.(KUNA)
