The first Qatar Climate Change Conference, hosted by Qatar Foundation and sponsored by ExxonMobil Qatar was held in partnership with the Abdullah Bin Hamad Al-Attiyah International Foundation for Energy and Sustainable Development.

The event saw industry leaders and stakeholders from all over the world discuss how to pursue economic development alongside achieving sustainability goals.

To meet the objectives of the Paris Agreement in 2030 – and to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050 – nations must continue to educate people while investing in innovation and technologies to drive solutions, Experts have said at the first Qatar Climate Change Conference.

His Excellency Dr. Abdullah bin Abdulaziz bin Turki Al-Subaie, Minister of Municipality and Environment and Acting Minister of State for Cabinet Affairs, also delivered a keynote speech, emphasizing how climate change has become the most pressing challenge of today, and how Qatar is taking real, tangible action to address it.

“Education is absolutely key to understanding the specifics of climate change,” he added. “Qatar will continue to invest in education, arming people with the knowledge and skills needed to develop a sustainable future.”

Omran Al-Kuwari, CEO, Qatar Foundation International, highlighted how Qatar Foundation has weaved sustainability into every aspect of its operations, from educating children in its Pre-University Education eco-system, to RDI investment.

“Interestingly, according to experts, the technologies needed to get 2030 targets already exist,” Mr. Al Kuwari said. “But to get to 2050, we need new technologies. I think that’s where there is a huge opportunity for economic development, for entrepreneurs, for new companies to be developed, for companies to grow. That’s where Qatar can play a huge role – to invest now and be a part of the solution in 2050.”
