The 7th edition of World Green Economy Summit aims to achieve strategic objectives centred around consolidating constructive dialogue between parties committed to advancing the green economy and reviewing the latest digital platforms and international best practices in the green economy and sustainable development.
The World Green Economy Summit will also provide a venue for participants to identify critical areas for investments that support green transformation. It will additionally explore effective ways to achieve recommendations of the 21st and 22nd Conference of Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, the Paris Agreement, and outcomes of the last edition of the World Green Economy Summit, including recommendations of the Dubai Declaration 2019.
The World Green Economy Summit 2021 will address four main pillars: Youth; Innovation and Smart Technologies; Green Economy and Policies; and Green Finance.
The ‘Youth’ pillar will discuss empowering young people to innovate and lead countries into their sustainable futures. The World Green Economy Summit will also examine how to operationalise the outcomes of the COP26 Youth Summit in the Middle East.
The ‘Innovation and Smart Technologies’ pillar discusses ways to spark creative applications of advanced technologies to address climate challenges.
Discussions in the ‘Green Economy and Policies’ pillar will focus on harnessing global momentum for effective policy frameworks to accelerate climate action, particularly in hard-to-abate sectors, and build a regional consensus ahead of COP26.
The ‘Green Finance’ pillar will focus on capitalising on the boom in the Environment, Society, and Governance finance for green growth and position the Middle East as a driver of green infrastructure and innovation.
