Dubai to host green economy summit in 2014

Oct 11 2013, 3:56am CDT | by IANS

Dubai, Oct 11 (IANS/WAM) Vice Chairman of the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy (DSCE) Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, has announced that Dubai will host the first green economy summit in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region April 15-16 next year, to complement the sustainable future vision of the UAE and the global efforts to combat climate change.

Dubai, Oct 11 (IANS/WAM) Vice Chairman of the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy (DSCE) Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, has announced that Dubai will host the first green economy summit in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region April 15-16 next year, to complement the sustainable future vision of the UAE and the global efforts to combat climate change.

Al Tayer, in a press conference in Dubai Thursday, said the World Green Economy Summit, being held under the theme 'Global Partnerships, Sustainable Future', is in line with the 'Green Economy For Sustainable development' initiative, announced last year by Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Ruler of Dubai, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.

It is a national strategy to help make the UAE a world leader in the field of green economy, and a global centre for exporting and re-exporting green technologies and products.

Al Tayer, who is also the managing director and chief executive officer of the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority, added that the first green economy summit in the MENA region would bring together government, business and financial leaders to forge global partnerships and provide paths to a sustainable future for humanity.

"The UAE is the first country in the MENA region to commit to a green economy strategy and Dubai is leading the region in green infrastructure investment from renewable energy and green building to public transport and green technologies," Al Tayer added.

The World Green Economy Summit is supported by Dubai Supreme Council of Energy, the organisation that leads Dubai's transition to a green and low-carbon economy across all strategic economic sectors.
