Arabic has become the ninth translated version of the iconic IGS Sustainability eBook.
It joins versions already available in French, Spanish, Italian, German, Portuguese, Turkish, Chinese and Japanese.
The eBook, called ‘Preparing the ground for a brighter future’, was launched to coincide with Earth Day 2020 in April that year. It was based on the Giroud Lecture given by IGS Vice President Nathalie Touze, called ‘Healing The World: A Geosynthetics Solution’’.
The digital publication explores the varied ways geosynthetics can make a positive impact in creating a more sustainable world. Language-specific versions help ensure these important messages reach a wider audience to further understanding and discussion.
Dr. Omar Amer, of IGS Egypt, said: “Having a translated edition of this IGS resource will be very beneficial in terms of allowing much more effective outreach. It will help extend our Society’s impact to every corner of the world and will allow more people to benefit from the various applications of geosynthetics.”
