New Dates Set for First-Ever Middle East and North Africa Climate Week

  • New dates for the first-ever Middle East and North Africa Climate Week, MENACW 2022, have been announced.
  • Originally planned to begin in February, the recent surge in Omicron variant cases required the in-person meeting to be delayed.
  • MENACW 2022 is now scheduled to be held from 28 to 31 March in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

According to the government of the United Arab Emirates, the COVID-19 figures in the country have declined and UAE is gradually lifting COVID-19 restrictions to reach full capacity at venues. The last week of March is also a key week, being the last week of EXPO Dubai and will see the hosting of numerous other high-profile events in the city.

Participants are encouraged to register as early as possible HERE

MENACW 2022 is an opportunity for governments, the private sector, cities, indigenous communities, youth and civil society to engage in solution-oriented dialogue, find common ground and collaborate on climate action.

MENACW 2022 is also a key opportunity to advance implementation of the Paris Agreement and the Glasgow Climate Pact adopted at November’s COP26 and to carry regional momentum forward to COP27 in Egypt.

Green Building Africa promotes the need for net carbon zero buildings and cities in Africa. We are fiercely independent and encourage outlying thinkers to contribute to the #netcarbonzero movement. Climate change is upon us and now is the time to react in a more diverse and broader approach to sustainability in the built environment. We challenge architects, property developers, urban planners, renewable energy professionals and green building specialists. We also challenge the funding houses and regulators and the role they play in facilitating investment into green projects. Lastly, we explore and investigate new technology and real-time data to speed up the journey in realising a net carbon zero environment for our children.
