Indonesia is scheduled to hold an international Muslim conference on climate change in Bogor, West Java, from March 1 to March 2, 2010, national news agency Antara reported.

Head of the conference's steering committee Ismid Hadad told a press conference in Jakarta on Tuesday that the Muslim conference would be a continuation of the declaration of the Muslim Seven-Year Action Plan for Climate Change concluded in Istanbul, Turkey, in June last year.

Ismid, who is also the chairman of the patronage council of Kehati Foundation, said there would be three items to be discussed at the conference, including climate change issue and what Muslims can do, Antara news agency reported.

The second item will be the plan to establish a Muslim Association for Climate Change Action (Macca), which is expected to become an umbrella organization for the implementation of the action plans in various Muslim countries around the world.

The third item will be the declaration of four cities in the Muslim countries as green cities or “Al Khaer City”, which will also include Bogor. The other three will be Madinah (Arab Saudi), Salleh (Morocco) and Sanaa (Yemen).

Up to 150 environmental experts, scientists and elemas have been invited to the conference from 30 Muslim countries including the United Arab Emirates, Brunei Darussalam, Malaysia, African countries, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Kuwait and Egypt.
