(Paris) – The United Arab Emirates has delivered its national statement on climate change at the 21st session of the Conference of Parties, COP21, at the United Nations Framework on Climate Change Convention, UNFCCC, in Paris, France, encouraging nations to protect future generations from the impacts of climate change and stressing the economic and social benefits of climate action.
“This year we have seen an unprecedented display of climate action by countries all around the world, with more than 185 nations submitting climate action plans ahead of COP21,” said Dr. Sultan Al Jaber, UAE Minister of State and Special Envoy for Energy and Climate Change. “This proves that all countries are taking action to address climate change and the Paris agreement must build on these actions.”
During his remarks, Dr. Al Jaber outlined the UAE’s vision for a meaningful climate agreement, saying, “The world needs a flexible system, one which allows all countries to develop climate actions in line with their national priorities and circumstances.
“It should provide the appropriate support to developing countries, including the fulfilment of funding commitments made by developed countries to help nations with limited means to cope with impacts of climate change.”
Dr. Al Jaber also highlighted the UAE’s position as a global leader in climate action and reiterated the country’s efforts to diversify its economy through new technologies and partnerships.
