The Federal constitutional monarchy of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) condemns the inaction towards climate and is currently working to limit global warming to 2°C by 2050. The United Arab Emirates recognizes that pollution is a major factor of global warming and it has decided to strongly contribute to end it. The UAE’s involvement on climate change in an international level has been demonstrated by its commitment to a multitude of international conventions and protocols such as the Vienna Convention for the Protection of the Ozone Layer in 1969, The Montreal Protocol on Substances That Deplete the Ozone Layer in 1989, by ratifying the Doha Amendment under the Kyoto Protocol in 1992, and also by being the 155th party who has submitted its climate action plan to the United Nation for the Conference of the Parties (COP21). “We have to strike a balance of responsibility between our duty to update other sources of energy, protecting our environment and ensuring a proper legacy for the next generation” because the “future of the country is contingent on our ability to manage our national resources with wisdom and keenness on the interests of the future.”, has said Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan. Furthermore, the UAE have a 15 years Green Agenda which is periodically updated that which promotes green growth and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 1, 2 and 5. The UAE is in a location where the environment is water-scarce and hyper-arid, therefore the implication involvement of the UAE is very important in the fight against climate change and large decisive actions should be made right now. Climate change is not only a threat of to the UAE but also for all the countries in the world. 

The UAE already have a large-scale deployment of solar energy technologies and itwhich is an example of its implications involvement in the addressing the global sustainable development agenda and its leadership with in actions against climate change.

Developing countries need to grow their economy as green as possible. To achieve this goal, all the developed countries will have to work together.
