JEDDAH: The Jeddah-based International Islamic Relief Organization (IIRO) has welcomed cooperation with the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) for the establishment of a creative partnership aimed at promoting environmental policies in developing and poor countries.
“We will sign a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with UNIDO to exchange programs, experts and knowledge,” IIRO’s Secretary-General Adnan Khalil Basha told Arab News on Wednesday.
He said IIRO would make use of UNIDO’s program of Resource Efficient and Cleaner Production (RECP) that aims at improving efficiencies in the consumption of natural resources. The secretary general recently met with a UNIDO delegation. “We intend to introduce the RECP in the schools, hospitals and other utilities we are running in various parts of the world,” he said.
