Dr. Mohammad Ghorbani, Deputy Minister for Economic Development of the Minister of Agriculture Jahad, who accompanied Mottakan, Deputy Minister of Management and Resources Development, during his visit, said: "FRWO has human resource capability and has carried out good programmes in various sectors,
however, it is important to be able to use these strategies to protect forests and manage groundwater resources".
At the beginning of the meeting, Head of FRWO presented a report on FRWO's performance in the forest, rangeland, desert and watershed management sectors and reiterated that considering the fact that natural
resources comprise about 80 percent of our national territory, FRWO has heavy
responsibility of natural resources management throughout the country.
He said: "Iran is a developing country and development is inevitable, but development in different parts of the country should be commensurate with the advantages of region and in a way that causes minimal damage to natural resources, therefore, a large part of the agencies and ministries that want to work in the development sector are directly related to natural resources management."
Mansour reminded that FRWO was committed to carry out our outmost power in line with the "9 in 99" initiative, which included nine innovative activities along with the four pivotal programmes.
