(Abu Dhabi) – Following directions from President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan and Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, the United Arab Emirates has formally submitted its Intended Nationally-Determined Contribution, INDC, an outline of what actions the UAE aims to take to combat climate change, to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, UNFCCC.
The UAE Cabinet endorsed the proposed climate action plan at its meeting on the 25th of October. The plan reflects the UAE’s economic diversification strategy and its commitment to sustainable development, which harness innovation and green growth to ensure prosperity and environmental protection. The country’s national target to generate 24 percent of its electricity from clean energy sources by 2021 reinforces its contribution to climate action.
“Our leadership recognises that climate action can simultaneously create economic opportunity and protect the environment. Therefore, the UAE has set an ambitious course to accelerate the creation of knowledge-based sectors to underpin our nation’s ability to thrive in a 21st century economy,” said Dr. Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber, UAE Minister of State and Special Envoy for Energy and Climate Change.
