Qatar Climate Change Conference 2021

A platform for addressing key climate change topics facing Qatar and the world.



The inaugural Qatar Climate Change Conference aimed to address key climate change topics of national importance to Qatar, bringing together high-level representatives from the public and private sector. The gathering supported Qatar’s ongoing contributions to global conversations around climate change policy and action.

Hosted in Education City on 13 September 2021, the conference was organized by Qatar Foundation with support from the Abdullah bin Hamad Al-Attiyah International Foundation for Energy & Sustainable Development (Strategic Partner) and ExxonMobil (Gold Sponsor).
