The Libyan Centre for Environmental Science and Technology Research in the Southern Region on Tuesday organized a ceremony on the occasion of inaugurating its new branch in Ubari.

The step comes to conserve and protect the environment and prevent environmental pollution in various aspects, says the center, as quoted by the Municipality of Ubari.

The event brought together environmental experts, including the Head of the Libyan Center for Environmental Technology Studies and Research, Dr. Abdul Salam Al-Matnani, who gave a speech on this occasion.

Al-Matnani highlighted the importance of the environment in all areas of life and discussed means of developing instruments to prevent, reduce and control environmental pollution, drawing attention that it has become an increasingly pervasive source of danger nationwide.

He underscored that providing environmental services can play a crucial role in getting the local community to care more about this issue.

The centre's head urged the Environmental Sanitation Office, the Public Services Company, and voluntary institutions to work together on this aspect.
