MENA Climate Week 2023

Hosted by the government of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the Middle East and North Africa Climate Week 2023 (MENACW 2023) will take place from 8 to 12 October 2023 in Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

MENACW 2023 provides a timely opportunity for policymakers, practitioners, businesses, civil society, and youth to share climate solutions, overcome barriers, realize opportunities, and ultimately take concrete action that will allow us to course-correct and achieve the Paris Agreement goals and objectives.

MENACW 2023 will also help gather region-specific contributions to inform the first-ever Global Stocktake scheduled to conclude at COP28 in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in December 2023. This is a unique opportunity to call for decisive and inclusive change and for urgently responding to the need for accelerating progress across all areas of the Paris Agreement.

The discussions during the event will be organized into four systems-based tracks, each focusing on specific themes:

•    Energy systems and industry
•    Cities, urban and rural settlements, infrastructure and transport
•    Land, ocean, food and water
•    Societies, health, livelihoods, and economies

MENACW 2023 is organized by the UNFCCC Secretariat in collaboration with global partners UNDP, UNEP, and the World Bank, as well as regional partners including the League of Arab States, the Islamic Development Bank (IsDB), the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), and the UN Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA).
