Middle East Green Initiative: World leaders meet in Riyadh to address climate change.
World leaders convene in Riyadh for climate talks as part of the Middle East Green Initiative.
The Middle East Green Initiative (MGI) Summit, which will take place in Riyadh on October 25, has assembled world leaders in Saudi Arabia.
Imran Khan, the Prime Minister of Pakistan, Aziz Akhannouch, the Prime Minister of Morocco, and Najla Boden, the Prime Minister of Tunisia, are among those in Saudi Arabia for the Summit.
John Kerry, the United States’ first Special Presidential Envoy for Climate Change, is also in attendance.
Kerry, who was formerly the US Secretary of State, has long advocated for aggressive climate goals in order to keep the world on track with the Paris Agreement’s pledges.
As part of the Summit, he will deliver a special speech.
Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman will host the event, which will be televised live. He’ll likely lay forth Saudi Arabia’s plan for making the globe a greener, more sustainable environment.
As part of the Summit, many leaders of state will weigh in on the climate debates.
There will also be discussions on how green finance may assist governments and companies in achieving climate objectives, with financial experts providing their perspectives.
The Summit comes after a weekend of climate talks at the first Saudi Green Initiative (SGI) Forum and its companion event, the Youth Green Summit in Riyadh.
Both sessions focused on Saudi Arabia’s climate commitments as well as efforts that would help define the country’s long-term sustainability.
Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman kicked off the SGI Forum on October 23 by tripling the reduction objectives established for carbon emissions and announcing plans to increase Saudi Arabia’s protected areas to 30% and plant 10 billion trees.
The crown prince will be expanding on the promises and conversations made in the previous two days as part of the MGI Summit.
