HE Dr. Thani bin Ahmed Al Zeyoudi, UAE Minister of Climate Change and the Environment participated in the press conference and highlighted in his speech the importance of hosting the event and the UAE's relentless efforts in addressing climate change.

The press conference was attended by HE Majed Hassan Al Suwaidi, the UAE Ambassador to Spain; HE Fahad Al Hammadi, acting assistant undersecretary for the Green Development and Climate Change at the UAE Ministry of Climate Change and the Environment; Ovais Sarmad Deputy Executive Secretary of the United Nations Climate Change; Waleed Salman, Vice Chairman of WGEO; HE Ahmed Buti Al Muhairbi, WGEO Board Member; and Abdul Rahim Sultan, Director-General of WGEO.

"I am honored to congratulate His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE; His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai and His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, for the selection of Dubai to host first-ever MENA Climate Week 2020 coinciding with Expo 2020 Dubai”.

“The UNFCCC-WGEO Regional Collaboration Center’s Steering Committee will be organizing the MENA Climate Week 2020 in Dubai next year during Expo 2020 Dubai, with more than 10000 participants.

WGEO is always keen to support such initiatives and we will be providing the highest level of support for MENA Climate Week 2020. This event is an important platform for various nations in the region to participate, as countries, next year would be reviewing their efforts and achievements in their national climate action plans to support the Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN 2030,” noted Al Tayer.
