Dubai’s water and power authority (DEWA) is set to host the World Green Economy Summit (WGES) to highlight the transition toward clean energy. It will be held in September, alongside the 24th Water, Energy, Technology and Environment Exhibition (WETEX) and the Dubai Solar Show. Global experts are expected to attend the summit, including heads of state, speakers, media representatives, government officials, experts, and academics.
The WGES represents the UAE’s commitment to increasing global and regional cooperation to achieve climate neutrality and speed up the transition toward a green economy. The event will set the stage for experts to discuss policies and strategies while highlighting the achievements of climate-neutral initiatives. For the evolution of a green economy, the UAE already provides incentives for firms engaged in green manufacturing, uses alternative fuels, and promotes jobs in the renewable energy sector among youth in the country
