It was a roll-up-your-sleeves kind of session. The sense was that we need to keep moving action forward, because we don't have time.

There were an extraordinary number of agreements that were reached in 2015 around the future of development, how we see society and the planet, and how we will combat climate change.

The implications of unmitigated climate change for the UAE make its cities unbearably hot, water even more scarce and the region more unstable. Action alone and collectively to live in balance with the planet is fundamental for UAE's future prosperity.

Diversification is key. The speed with which previously oil-dependent countries embrace diversification will be a factor in how well they thrive during the energy transition that is now underway.

Low oil prices … and the need for clean air and secure supply chains of food and water all reinforce the wisdom of the UAE in taking a long-term view and moving to be a leader in renewable energy and energy productivity. Now we hope the UAE can share its lessons in the GCC and across the developing world.

All of the pollution that we put into the atmosphere in the past decades means that we are now locked in to a one and half degree centigrade increase in temperature by the mid-century. That means that there's very little we can do about that and so we have to be able to adapt to build resilience to that.
