WGES 2022 to Discuss Sustainable Action Plans to fight Climate Change

Dubai, a driving force for the transition towards a green economy and international cooperation to promote climate action

Dubai is further consolidating its position as a pioneer and leader in transitioning to a green economy to support the efforts of the UAE and the rest of the world in fighting the devastating consequences of climate change.

Dubai, in October 2021, through the Dubai Future Council on Energy, launched an in-depth study that outlined how the Emirate can achieve carbon neutrality (net zero emissions) by 2050.

"The framework for achieving our net zero targets has now been set and will help to strengthen Dubai's position as a leading enabler of green initiatives," said H.E. Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, Chairman of the Green Economy Organization (WGEO).

"This will help combat climate change and create a seamless path towards realising our vision of economic prosperity that goes hand in hand with environmental sustainability," he added.

WGES Highlights Importance of Green Urban Environment

According to Al Tayer, the study is part of Dubai's efforts to achieve its sustainability goals as outlined in the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050 and the Dubai Net Zero Carbon Emissions Strategy 2050 to provide 100% of the energy production capacity from clean energy sources by 2050.

These efforts will help combat climate change and create opportunities for a more sustainable economy.

The World Green Economy Summit (WGES) 2022 will highlight ongoing global efforts, discuss sustainable action plans to fight the ill-effects of changing climatic conditions and support collaborative initiatives to help the world achieve future sustainability by transitioning into a green economy.

WGES is organised by Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA), the World Green Economy Organization (WGEO), and the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy, in partnership with international organisations on 28-29 September 2022 at the Dubai World Trade Centre.

The Summit will convene prominent thought leaders and experts to share the latest insights on climate change initiatives, covering a wide range of sectors – transport and mobility, green technology, smart cities and urban planning, youth involvement, investments and finance.

The event will help delegates collect key takeaways from case study presentations and discussions on success stories of governments, big businesses and other organisations currently leading efforts to fight climate change.

An essential highlight of the Summit will be the release of the 8th Dubai Declaration, which will embody new commitments shaping future strategies and action plans to support climate action and green economy initiatives.
