Kuwait Discusses Steps to Lower Emissions as Temperatures Rise

Kuwait’s cabinet ordered a review into plans to reduce emissions from government projects in a country that is one of the largest carbon emitters per capita, and among the world’s hottest.

The cabinet told the Gulf state’s Environment Public Authority to work on ensuring implementation of Kuwait’s commitments and international agreements, according to a statement late on Monday. The EPA can coordinate with the ministry of finance to allocate the funds needed, it said.
