Global sustainability discussions have been shaped by issues primarily relevant to tropical and temperate countries. Less attention has been placed on hot and arid environments and deserts, and a perception has emerged that these environments are less relevant to sustainability. The 2023 Earthna Summit will seek to challenge these understandings and build new sustainability pathways for hot and arid environments.
The Summit will convene global, regional and local policymakers, thinkers, business and industry leaders, and academia. It will start to dispel these erroneous understandings and highlight the critical adaptation needs of these countries, as well as the major contributions that energy-rich countries such as Qatar can make towards energy transition and addressing climate change.
On the first day Mr. Aly Abou Sabaa, Director General ICARDA/ CWANA Regional Director CGIAR, will be engaging in the round table on Food security: Self Sufficiency, Surplus, and Supply.
