In 2022, Climate Week in New York was an opportunity for Positivéco to put the US green economic policy and the attractiveness of its market back at the centre of our attention.
In 2023, we note that the New York forum is giving a voice to emerging economies. These economies are already benefiting from a geographical redistribution of global economic growth. They weigh on the diplomatic stage and are positioning themselves as leaders in sustainability. Perhaps the leaders of the developed economies are ready to give up this position, as they struggle to implement decarbonisation objectives in their own territories?
The United Arab Emirates, which will be hosting COP 28, was a key witness to these new opportunities. Razan Al Mubarak has been head of the Abu Dhabi Environmental Agency since 2010 and is the embodiment of this new generation. She is currently President of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). She was appointed the United Nations Climate Change High-Level Champion for the leadership team of COP28.
In November, COP28 in the United Arab Emirates will see the first-ever comprehensive assessment of progress towards climate goals. An opportunity to take stock and look to the future.
