UAE asks to host 2023 climate change conference
DUBAI: The United Arab Emirates has asked to host the COP 28 international conference on climate change in its capital Abu Dhabi in 2023, state news agency WAM reported on Sunday.
The UAE is offering to host Conference of the Parties (COP 28) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) with a focus on the economic case for inclusive climate action, the statement said.
Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, said, “COP 28 will represent a pivotal moment to capitalize on this opportunity, and our vision is to work with all countries to realize their net economic benefits from accelerated action. “
“As COP 28 host, the UAE would leverage its experience as a regional and global convener to mobilize all actors in achieving the Paris Agreement and reinforcing the compelling investment case for raising ambitions,” Sheikh Abdullah added.
The UAE is a permanent host country for the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), and is considered the first country in the region to sign and ratify the Paris Agreement.
“Climate impacts are already being acutely felt, but our experience gives us optimism that we can meet global climate goals while creating social and economic opportunities – with contributions coming from all corners of the globe,” the minister said.#globalwarming #climatechange #carboncompensation #bluesky #climateemergency #climatecrisis #blueskye #blueskyefoundation #compensate #greentechexchange #zerocarbon #climatenews #blueskyelife #elonmusk #billgates #greentech #nasa #nasaclimate #greenfacts
