COP28

Hosting the COP28 climate conference reflects the UAE’s distinguished global standing in climate action and tangible contributions to leading global efforts aimed at mitigating the impacts of climate change on the world’s populations.

Climate change is a global crisis requiring global cooperation and effort, including the participation of individuals of all ages, backgrounds and nations.

The pace and intensity of climate phenomena are expected to increase over the coming years unless decisive steps are taken to curb rising global temperatures.

Given its already harsh climate with extremely high temperatures and scarce water, the UAE views climate change as a challenge to be confronted through collaborative efforts with the international community.

Moreover, it focuses on future-readiness and sustainability, which are enduring national values in the UAE since the era of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, a pioneer of sustainability and environmental protection.

Today, the UAE continues on the same path with H.H Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE, and H.H Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, prioritising comprehensive, sustainable development across all fronts.

Because the Middle East is greatly affected by climate change, hosting COP28 and having an active role in shaping and building the future is essential for the UAE.

Through the vision of its wise leadership, the UAE views climate action as an opportunity to address any challenges affecting humanity, transforming the issue into an opportunity for growth.

Scientists agree it is vital to avoid increased global temperatures, as achieving this goal is critical to curtailing escalating climate deterioration and averting its devastating consequences.
