EAD to Join UAE Alliance for Climate Action Advisory Committee

by Madaline Dunn

The Environment Agency – Abu Dhabi (EAD) has announced that it has signed a pledge to join the Advisory Committee of the UAE Alliance for Climate Action (UACA), part of the global Alliances for Climate Action, led by the UN Climate Change High-Level Champions.

The UACA, launched by Emirates Nature-WWF and endorsed by the UAE Ministry of Climate Change and Environment, aims to ramp up momentum for near-and long-term net-zero targets.

EAD will work alongside other members to provide high-level strategic and technical guidance. The organisation will also assist UACA’s outreach by supporting synergies between non-state actor decarbonisation learnings and engaging policymakers on findings and recommendations, it was shared.

Further, EAD said that it will:

  • Raise awareness around UACA and its benefits to the UAE,
  • Identify strategic opportunities for UACA to contribute to national projects, and
  • Assign a focal point to achieve the UAE’s Net Zero by 2050 strategic initiative by sharing information on upcoming policies and relevant information as necessary.

Dr. Shaikha Salem Al Dhaheri, the Agency’s Secretary-General, signed the pledge on behalf of EAD, in the presence of Razan Khalifa Al Mubarak, Chair of the UACA Advisory Committee, President of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and the UN Climate Change High-Level Champion for COP28, along with Laila Mostafa Abdullatif, Director-General of Emirates Nature-WWF.

Razan Al Mubarak commented: “EAD is the primary custodian of climate action in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, and it is fitting that the Agency would be a key member of the UAE Alliance for Climate Action Advisory Committee due to its vast years of experience in addressing climate change.”
