During Egypt’s “Forum of Sustainability and Government Action”, the UAE Government and the Arab Administrative Development Organisation (ARADO) of the Arab League launched a report titled “Sustainability and Government Action: Arab Government Situation”. This launch is part of the UAE’s commitment to the Year of Sustainability.

Among the attendees were Ohood bint Khalfan Al Roumi, Minister of State for Government Development and the Future, ARADO’s Director-General Nasser Al Hatlan Al Qahtani, and various other Arab ministers and officials linked to administrative development and sustainability.

The report, based on interviews with 1,800 Arab government officials, recommended the development of smart cities, the encouragement of green financing, the effective use of private sector resources, and the need to increase awareness in pertinent fields.

Dr. Sultan bin Ahmed Al Jaber, Minister of Industry and Advanced Technology and COP28 President-Designate, underscored the pivotal role governments play in mitigating climate change by formulating appropriate strategies that align with global climate objectives. This includes collaboration with relevant regional and international organisations.

Al Roumi, during her keynote speech at the forum, emphasised the necessity of crafting policies and laws that support sustainable green transformation. She also highlighted the importance of fostering public-private partnerships to attain climate neutrality.

The report will guide Arab governments towards sustainability and climate change mitigation while addressing related economic and social challenges, Al Roumi added. She pointed out the opportunities for long-term economic growth presented in the report, including proactive climate policies and measures, and underscored the need for resilience in adapting to green government requirements.

Al Qahtani shared that the report’s launch reflects Arab governments’ commitment to environmental protection and climate change mitigation. He further noted that the initiative would advance Arab administrative development, crucial for achieving comprehensive and sustainable development.

In conclusion, the report emphasised that hosting COP28 in the UAE presents an opportunity to attract regional investments and establish partnerships across various sectors.
