Project Background, Outcomes and Impacts

Background: The creation of the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change in 2021 has elevated climate change as an emerging national agenda for the State of Qatar. The adoption of the National Environment and Climate Change Strategy further solidifies Qatar’s commitment to achieve its environmental and climate goals in line with national development objectives and the Paris Agreement. Qatar’s young population presents enormous opportunities for tapping the full potential of the youth to contribute to the achievement of QNE targets. However, this will require tremendous efforts in raising awareness, sharing knowledge, and honing the technical capacity of stakeholders in a wide range of green growth areas. Hence, this project aims to equip local stakeholders with the required shift in mindset, as well as skills and tools to design and implement green growth initiatives in support of Qatar’s vision of achieving a knowledge-based sustainable economy.

 

Outcomes: Improved knowledge, awareness, and technical competencies of local stakeholders in Qatar with a strong sense of local ownership and empowerment in taking climate action

Impacts: Realization of knowledge-based green economy led by a critical mass of well-informed, empowered, and capable citizens and residents of Qatar
