Moreover, the Conference informed the attendees of the extent of damages incurred, rehabilitation plans, and provided a platform to deliberate on the environmental concerns both at the local and the regional levels with opportunities for collaboration.
Organisation of the event also coincided with the theme of the IDF 2024, innovation.
