Dr. Sultan Al Jaber Must Not Lead CoP28

The fact that a fossil sector executive will be in charge of the 2023 climate change negotiations outrages Rescue Mission International (ReMI). On Tuesday, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) named Sultan al-Jaber, the president-designate of the 2023 Climate Change Conference and the head of oil giant Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) (CoP28). The position was filled at a time when the state-owned Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), of which he is CEO, was looking to expand upstream crude output by entering into concession agreements for additional exploration and production in order to develop oil resources. This is significant because Jebel Ali in 2020 had been found to contain more than 80 trillion cubic feet of gas resources. This is appalling behavior that shows a complete disdain for the CoP procedures and the ongoing climate change negotiations over the past 30 years. We demand that Dr. Sultan Al Jaber resign immediately and condemn it in the strongest terms imaginable. ~ Ibrahim Tuzee Abdul-Raheem (Co-Founder and Head of Climate and Environmental Governance Cluster)

PRESS STATEMENT BY THE RESCUE MISSION INTERNATIONAL IN CELEBRATION OF THE UN INTERNATIONAL YOUTH DAY, 2019

12th August was first designated International Youth Day by the UN General

Assembly in 1999, and serves as an annual celebration of the role of young women and men as essential partners in change, and an opportunity to raise awareness of challenges and problems facing the world’s youth. This year’s theme “Transforming Education” highlights all the efforts to make education more inclusive and accessible for all youth, including efforts by youth themselves. As captured as goal number 4 of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). According to the UN, there are currently 1.8 billion young people between the ages of 10 and 24 in the world. This is the largest youth population ever. But 1 in 10 of the world’s children live in conflict zones and 24 million of them are out of school. Political instability, labor market challenges and limited space for political and civic participation have led to increasing isolation of youth in societies. Education simply put is the gradual process of acquiring knowledge. Knowledge simply put is the psychological result of perception, learning and reasoning. This therefore implies that, Education has an impact on the reasoning and behavior of an individual and therefore, quality Education must be made easily accessible to the Youth across the globe in order to build a sustainable future. The Theme for this year’s International Youth Day is coined to help examine how Governments, young people, youth-led and youth-
