The UAE's Minister of Climate Change and Environment is set to present the country's climate action model at the UN Climate Action Summit.

Dr. Thani bin Ahmed Al Zeyoudi arrived in New York earlier on Saturday for the event, which will run parallel with the 74th session of the UN General Assembly.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres will convene the gathering on Monday under the theme ‘A Race We Can Win: A Race We Must Win’.

The event seeks to mobilise leaders to enhance their countries’ nationally determined contributions by 2020 in line with reducing global greenhouse gas emissions by 45 per cent over the next decade, and to net-zero by 2050.
