His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, announced on Thursday November 13, 2021 that UAE had won its bid to host the COP28 conference in 2023.
What is COP28 Conference?
COP28 Conference – The UN Climate Change Conference is the largest global conference of heads of states and governments on climate and environmental issues.
Sheikh Mohammed’s announcement came after the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) confirmed the UAE as host.
Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, said that UAE is pleased and honored to take on this responsibility and commits as a nation to support the entire international community in accelerating combined efforts to overcome the very real threat of climate change.
He added that UAE looks forward to welcoming the world at COP28 where the voice of every nation and stakeholder will be heard, ensuring that, together, we not only help mitigate the effects of global warming, but also unlock new opportunities to realize greater prosperity and a better life for future generations.
The UAE has pledged $1 billion of increased investment as part of this initiative, which aims to increase and accelerate agricultural and food systems innovation in support of climate action. AIM for Climate focusses on leveraging high-potential economic returns and job creation from innovation investment in a sector that employs over 2 billion people and feeds the world.
As Turnkey Family Office we are so pleased to see UAE accomplish great things.
