    ICESCO’s DG highlighted the critical nature of addressing the adverse effects of climate change to prevent severe repercussions for future generations. This necessitates the enactment of stringent policies to curb global emissions, invest in renewable energy infrastructure, and support for initiatives that enhance the ability to adapt to climate change.

    Dr. AlMalik further reviewed ICESCO’s efforts aimed at achieving the common goal of “protecting our planet for future generations” through practical initiatives and programs, emphasizing the Organization’s commitment to ongoing participation in United Nations climate change conferences and its contribution to the preparations for COP29.
