(Abu Dhabi) – U.A.E. is continuing with its concerted actions to overcome the urgent global challenges of food security, climate change, water insecurity and infrastructure development, following the U.A.E. government’s commitment to achieving the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) by 2015, according to H.H. Sheikha Lubna bint Khalid Al Qasimi, Minister of International Cooperation and Development (MICAD).
Delivering a lecture entitled ‘Towards Sustainability: The role of the U.A.E. as a key player in Global Human Development’, Sheikha Lubna added that the U.A.E.’s initiatives are the outcome of the vision and commitment of the leadership to widen the country’s contributions to sustainable development goals. Sustainable development goals are expected to be adopted as the next stage of action for the eight MGDs by the United Nation’s member states at a summit in September 2015.
The lecture was organised under the lecture series at the Masdar Institute campus. A number of government, non-government and private sector stakeholders, including Dr. Sultan bin Ahmed Sultan Al Jaber, Minister of State, Chief Executive Officer of Energy at Mubadala and Chairman of Masdar, Philip Parham, Ambassador of the United Kingdom to the U.A.E. and official representatives from the United Nations in the U.A.E. were present. Students, faculty and staff members from Masdar Institute and other universities also attended the lecture.
