Under the theme “Empowering Global Action: Unlocking Opportunities and Advancing Progress,” WGES is organized by the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy, DEWA, and WGEO. The summit aims to enhance collaboration among stakeholders by providing a global platform that brings together experts and decision-makers in energy, economy, climate change, and green finance.

Participants will exchange knowledge and experiences, strengthen partnerships, and discuss policies and solutions to accelerate the sustainable green economy.

Key topics at the 10th WGES will include decarbonization, clean energy advancements such as green hydrogen and energy storage, climate finance, and technology for climate change, among other related topics.

Last year, the UAE hosted the COP28 conference where the 'Climate and Health' declaration was inked by 123 countries.

The declaration is the world’s first to acknowledge the need for governments to protect communities and prepare healthcare systems to cope with climate-related health impacts such as extreme heat, air pollution, and infectious diseases.

It covers a range of action areas at the nexus of climate and health, including building more climate-resilient health systems, strengthening cross-sectoral collaboration to reduce emissions and maximize the health benefits of climate action, and increasing finance for climate and health solutions. 

Also, The COP28 Presidency introduced the Technical Cooperation Collaborative (TCC) aimed at aiding the execution of the COP28 UAE declaration on sustainable agriculture, resilient food systems, and climate action.

The oil-rich nation of Azerbaijan will host the COP29 climate conference in November 2024.

Meanwhile, delegates have formally awarded the hosting rights for the United Nations Climate Conference in 2025 (COP30) to Brazil.
