The UAE exports oil and hosts the International Renewable Energy Agency’s (IRENA) headquarters.

‘The UAE demonstrated a proven track record in progressive climate action and multilateral cooperation that makes it an ideal conver for COP 28’, Sheikh Abdullah was quoted as saying by state news agency WAM.

‘The UAE has invested around $17 billion in commercial renewable energy projects on six continents and provided over $1 billion of grants and soft loans for renewable energy power plants’.

The British government will host next summit, COP 26, in Glasgow in November.
