Dubai Declaration

- We recognise that climate change is an urgent global threat with impacts that 
reach beyond the environment agenda to include economic, social, and 
environmental challenges.
- We acknowledge that sustainable and green recovery should steer our efforts 
to rebuild the economy after the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as to limit the 
temperature increase to well below 2 degrees Celcius aiming for 1.5 degrees 
Celcius above pre-industrial levels, in line with the Paris Agreement "COP21". 
- We encourage inclusive partnerships in which governments, businesses and 
civil society are part of collective action, for current and future generations.
- We encourage further support towards low carbon transition by developing a 
strategy and a roadmap for green hydrogen in Dubai.
- The World Green Economy Organization (WGEO) will continue as the leading 
platform and partnership enabler for international cooperation, 
knowledge-sharing and technology transfer between developed and developing 
countries, taking account of the special needs and circumstances of Least 
Developed Countries and Small Island Developing States, aiming to promote 
design and implementation of green economy policies at national, regional and 
global levels.
- We look forward to the fulfillment of commitments to the goals of the Paris 
Agreement, while rendering our full support for a successful UNFCCC COP26 to be 
held in November 2021 in Scotland.
- We will coordinate and align the regional response to climate change for an 
effective implementation of the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and 
other national climate strategies and policies through UNFCCC WGEO Regional 
Collaboration Centre in Dubai, during MENA Climate Week 2022. This will 
coincide with the next World Green Economy Summit in Expo 2020 Dubai in March
