Future summit 'to set right' climate issues

Posted by Neil King

An event scheduled for the beginning of next year could prove to be of interest if you have a property in the UAE.

It will see more than 100 countries come together to try and come up with answers to combat climate change.

The third World Future Energy Summit is set to take place in Abu Dhabi, led by government ministers from the Middle East, Asia, North America, Europe and Africa.

It is hoped that as a collective, the attendees will be able to come up with solutions also relating to energy challenges.

According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), by 2030 increased energy demand in the region of 70 per cent will come from developing countries.

The current rate of growth of developing countries' emissions is outstripping those of the developed world, it is reported, although developing nations appear unwilling to take on historical responsibility for this and as a result this will be a subject up for discussion at next year's summit.

Abu Dhabi's National Exhibition Centre – opened in 2007 - will play host to the event.
