In order to address climate-related issues, Qatar adopted a comprehensive strategy that proposes measures to reduce the impact of land use development on exacerbating climate change, as well as measures to adapt development to the impacts resulting from anticipated climate change.
Therefore, the State of Qatar continues to take the necessary measures to develop climate change-related technologies and clean energy to safeguard Qatar’s environment for future generations.
To achieve these targets, the State of Qatar has enhanced its global cooperation and abidance by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and other global pacts and plans that aim at mitigating the climate change impacts in accordance with the implementation of Qatar National Vision 2030.  As part of these efforts, the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change hosted an event in partnership with the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) under the theme “Climate Leadership in the State of Qatar and the Road to the 27th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 27)”.
