Championing climate action at home and abroad

A comprehensive, sustainable approach to safeguard our shared future.

The need to reverse the effects of climate change can clearly be seen across the Middle East and Africa. From increased desertification and dust storms that impact air quality, to dwindling freshwater supplies, rising temperatures and extreme weather events already affect quality of life and economic opportunities. Saudi Arabia is spearheading far-reaching, tailored action and is proud to play a key role in leading international collaborations for a more sustainable global future.

His Royal Highness Mohammed bin Salman Al-Saud

We are ushering in a new green era for the region; in which we are collectively leading and reaping its fruits, in our joint belief that the effects of climate change are not limited to the natural environment only, but also to the economy and security of our nations.

HRH Mohammed bin Salman,
Crown Prince and Prime Minister of Saudi Arabia
