Minister Jaishankar congratulates COP28 President Al Jaber

Indian Minister S Jaishankar congratulated UAE Minister Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber on being appointed as the President-designate for the 28th Conference of the Parties (COP28).

Al Jaber's appointment came under the directive of President Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Presidential court, especially at a time when the world is dealing with difficulties related to energy, food, and water security.

Notably, Al Jaber is Minister of Industry and Advanced Technology (MoIAT), has served as Special Envoy for Climate Change for two terms (2010-2016, 2020-present), and played a proactive participatory role at over ten COPs, including the historic Paris COP21 in 2015.

The announcement by UAE highlights the UAE's leadership in climate action in the area and its function as a global proponent of renewable energy.

The UAE has spent more than USD 50 billion in renewable energy projects across 70 nations, with plans to invest at least another USD 50 billion over the next ten years. It is home to three of the largest and most affordable solar installations in the world, the state media agency, WAM reported.
