The Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities, ICESCO, UNESCO, the United Nations Development Program and Egypt's Industrial Modernization Center on Friday signed a memorandum of understanding to support the country's green transition project by converting heritage sites and museums to the use of solar energy as a sustainable alternative that does not affect the environment and contributes in achieving the sustainable development goals.

The signing ceremony was held on the sidelines of the global climate conference, COP27, in Sharm El-Sheikh, with a high-level presence of princes, ministers and officials representing the MoU's parties and member states, ICESCO said in a statement.

Natural heritage sites affected by climate change increased from 35 to 62 in just three years, it added. The MoU aims at providing sustainable protection for heritage sites from the negative effects of using unclean energy sources, the statement read.

It also aims to encourage member states to adopt green transition initiatives, it added.
