Ministerial Dialogue on Clean Energy Transitions and Economic Resilience in the Middle East and North Africa

The oil and gas producing economies of the Middle East and North Africa are particularly affected by climate change, and Ministers from the region will explore ways to leverage clean energy transitions to ensure broader economic resilience at a Ministerial Dialogue on 9 September organised by the Ministry of Energy and Minerals of the Sultanate of Oman and the International Energy Agency.

The Ministerial Dialogue – which will be co-hosted by Oman’s Minister of Energy and Minerals Mohammed bin Hamad Al-Rumhi and IEA Executive Director Fatih Birol – will address the particular challenges that energy transitions present for economies in the Middle East and North Africa, as well as the tangible opportunities for those countries to increase economic resilience and prosperity for the region and its people.
