International experts in environment and green technology to take part in discussions

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 8 September 2019: The sixth edition of World Green Economy Summit (WGES) 2019 will discuss innovation as well as the key achievements realised by the UAE to push forward the journey in transforming to a green economy.

The summit will be held under the patronage of HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, under the theme ‘Innovative Technologies for a Sustainable Economy' on October 20th and 21st at Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre in sync with the 21st edition of Water, Energy, Technology, and Environment Exhibition (WETEX) and the fourth edition of Dubai Solar Show and the sixth edition of the Green Week.

The Summit will include sessions and meetings in the fields of environment, innovation, green technologies from all over the world representing public and private sectors to move forward sustainable development and the transformation to a green economy.

HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, Vice Chairman of the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy, Managing Director and CEO of Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA), and Chairman of WGES said, “We are working on implementing the vision and direction of HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, by emphasizing on nurturing and supporting innovators and boosting their capabilities, creativity and innovation to match the futuristic vision in all walks of development in the country. Our wise government makes sure to reinforce innovation, culture and way of living through an integrated system via its comprehensive strategy of innovation that aims to make the UAE one of the most innovative countries in the world by 2021.”

HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer added, “Innovation is one of the key pillars that we count in our journey towards sustainability, where the current vision is not limited to have cost savings and risk management as the key consideration, but the concept of sustainability expands to include the adoption of environmental friendly, technological innovation that will contribute in achieving green goals. The UAE has been at the forefront of countries that adopts innovative solutions and best practices where cooperation and collaboration between the public and private sectors is essential to achieve the best use of green technologies that will drive the journey of sustainable development.”

As far as Dubai's endeavours in innovation are considered, the Innovation Centre project, part of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, is an important element of the relentless efforts to showcase and adapt latest technologies related to clean and solar energy. The Innovation Centre houses an exhibition on solar power and renewable energy to attract individuals, tourists, university students, schools, and businesses. It will also host a permanent conference centre for events, conferences, business meetings, training courses, and meetings about solar and renewable energy and other green and sustainable initiatives.

The Summit in its past edition witnessed the launch of the World Green Economy Report, ‘Inspiring Innovations in Business, Finance and Policy,' in collaboration with the University of Cambridge and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). This shows the need to adopt more depth and diversity in our approach to building a real green economy and moving the global sustainability agenda forwards.
