It provides a platform for discussions on strategies to reduce greenhouse emissions and foster innovative solutions to combat the repercussions of climate change. It also showcases solutions for a swift and equitable transition toward a globally integrated green economy.
The WGES, themed ‘Bridging the Gap to the Future: Advancing the Global Green Economy,’ actively focuses on key topics to expedite the shift towards a sustainable and green economy.
“We will also discuss the possibility of a just and equitable global energy transition, by enabling developing countries to secure the financing and technology necessary to achieve this transformation while enhancing their capabilities to confront and adapt to climate change,” Ms. Almheiri, added.
