9th WGES to pave way for global collaboration on green economy goals

The organisers of the World Green Economy Summit (WGES) have called on those interested in attending the summit to register on the website to participate in the high-level activities, seminars, and panel discussions held during the 9th WGES.

Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA), the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy (DSCE), and the World Green Economy Organisation (WGEO) are organising WGES on 28th-29th November 2023 at Madinat Jumeirah Conference Centre in Dubai.

Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, Vice Chairman of the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy, MD and CEO of DEWA, and Chairman of WGEO, said,

"Over the past eight editions, WGES has contributed to consolidating Dubai's position as a global capital for green economy. It has strengthened the UAE's effective role in promoting regional and international collaboration to support climate action based on coordinating efforts between stakeholders.

"These include federal and local government agencies, the private sector, and individuals from all segments of society to achieve sustainable and low-carbon economic growth and ensure a better future for humanity."

WGES, he added, will focus on the progress made in the previous summits and key innovations from subnational entities, civil society organisations, and the private sector. By convening relevant stakeholders worldwide, WGES will pave the way for COP28 and shed light on forward-looking solutions for a swift and equitable transition to a truly integrated global green economy.

WGES attracts several local and international figures, officials, decision-makers, experts, speakers, representatives of government organisations, media professionals, experts and academicians. It provides them a platform to discuss ways to accelerate the transition to a green global economy and make tangible progress in climate action by reducing carbon emissions, increasing resource efficiency, and involving all members of society for a more sustainable future.

WGES will focus on the UAE's priority areas for the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP28), which will be hosted by the UAE at Expo City Dubai from 30th November to 12th December 2023. This includes fast-tracking a just, orderly, equitable energy transition and climate finance.

WGES will focus on the following thematic pillars: green policy, green finance, green technology and innovation, green energy, and green partnerships.
