UAE Becomes First Country to Join World Green Economy Organization


UAE is now the first member of the World Green Economy Organisation, WGEO. WGEO, which was launched by President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum at the 3rd World Green Economy Summit in Dubai, will support the implementation of the Paris Agreement, and increase global awareness on climate change to enhance the shift towards a green economy. Through WGEO, UAE will have significant impact on knowledge and experience sharing which would help to overcome common challenges and to ensure successful achievement of their common green economy goals. The Green Economy for Sustainable Development initiative was launched in 2012, and the Green Agenda 2015-2030, set the course for UAE’s economic growth ambitions, social development priorities and environmental sustainability goals.
