The fund reportedly sought to battle environmental issues, especially dust storms that have recently crippled the country's western parts, the Shargh newspaper reported on Thursday.

The bill would authorize the provision of 600 billion rials (about $22 million) to enable the Department of Environment to carry out projects in controlling pollution, reviving lagoons and rivers, boosting environment monitoring measures, and launching public educational courses on environment protection.
