United Arab Emirates
National Climate Change Plan 2050
The National Climate Change Plan comes in line with the UAE Vision 2021 and the UAE Green Agenda 2015-2030. It seeks to: manage greenhouse emissions while sustaining economic growth; build climate resilience through minimizing risks and increasing capacity for climate adaptation; and advance the country's economic diversification agenda through innovative solutions. According to executive sources, the plan is designed to address the gaps and opportunities for growth in the short, medium and long term. However, the plan has not been published and targets do not seem to have been quantified.
The plan is overseen by the UAE Council on Climate Change and the Environment, which is an inter-ministerial, inter-Emirate governance body. The Ministry of Climate Change and Environment (MOCCAE) will assume the role of the secretariat and take on the primary responsibility for monitoring the progress of the plan. All previous targets and plans of action will now fall under this plan.
