Energy Transition Subcommittee

The Energy Transition Subcommittee (ETS) is a subcommittee of the MENA2050 Climate Action Committee, comprising experts from the MENA region and beyond, who bring valuable world-class energy and climate expertise. The ETS strongly advocates for the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and aligns with the principles outlined in the MENA2050 Green Prosperity Manifesto. With a clear vision and unwavering dedication, the members of the ETS are committed to advancing the overarching MENA2050's goals. Through collaborative efforts with key stakeholders including decision-makers, the private sector, academia, and civil society, the ETS endeavors to spearhead initiatives to facilitate energy transition and implement climate mitigation and adaptation strategies. The ETS seeks to drive impactful change by championing a comprehensive approach, fostering sustainable development throughout the MENA region.
