Kingdom endorses key climate change initiatives

Bahrain’s delegation at COP26 yesterday pledged support for four key international climate change initiatives.

The team was led by His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Crown Prince and Prime Minister, and included the kingdom’s special envoy for climate affairs and Supreme Council for Environment chief executive Dr Mohammed bin Daina.

• The UAE Net Zero by 2050 Strategic Initiative aims to strengthen multilateral co-operation, exchange best practice and know-how and drive joint climate action to achieve net zero carbon emissions.

• The Global Ocean Alliance 30by30 Initiative aims to protect at least 30 per cent of the world’s oceans as Marine Protected Areas by 2030.

• The Global Methane Pledge, launched yesterday, plans to cut global methane emissions by at least 30pc by 2030.

• The Greening Government Initiative will better enable participating countries to exchange information, promote innovation and share best practices to achieve the greening of government operations.

Bahrain’s endorsement of these four key international initiatives is evidence of its commitment to international co-operation and action to tackle climate change and follows the kingdom announcing its intention to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2060.
