JEDDAH- Twenty-four government and business establishments, including Jeddah Municipality and the General Presidency of Monitoring and Environmental Protection (GPMEP), have teamed up for a 10-year plan for coastal development. A meeting in this regard was held earlier this week to determine how coastal development projects can serve environmental, social, security and economic needs. It was decided that further meetings and workshops be conducted to prepare a thorough report on the coastal areas in the region. Osama Gorban, the GPMEP's Manager for Monitoring, presented a demonstration of the nature of the study, its goals and expected results. Saeed Madani represented Jeddah Municipality at the meeting.
