The Ibrahim Abd El Al Foundation held their annual dinner for their members and guests on Tuesday, December 2, 2014 at the Four Seasons Hotel Beirut. A grand audience of dignitaries, officials, specialists in the field of water, the press, and friends of the foundation gathered together, to mark another year of accomplishments across the water sector in Lebanon.
During the evening, the Ibrahim Abd El Al Foundation unveiled their new branding and name. Previously, the Foundation was known as ’The Friends of Ibrahim Abd El Al Association‘. The focus of the Foundation is now centered on sustainable development, in line with the global shift in energy and water. The driving aim is to preserve and properly manage resources for future generations.
“Our mission has always been, and continues to be, to raise awareness in the community in which we live and operate. We are looking forward to pushing forward the agenda for sustainable development in 2015 in Lebanon, and on a global scale,” said Nasser Nasrallah, President of the Ibrahim Abd El Al Foundation. “Together, as a communal effort, we will continue to work on a national scale, to tackle pressing issues, and are determined to position Lebanon on the forefront on a global scale,” he added.
The Ibrahim Abd El Al Foundation was founded in 1991, as a Scientific Association which aims at promoting the objectives that guided the late scientist Ibrahim Abd El Al throughout his professional work, namely the development of hydraulic and power projects in Lebanon as part of a planned vision at the national scale and as an Integrated Water Resource Management (IWRM).
