UAE's climate pledges can inspire other nations
With regard to Georgia Tolley’s article Cop26: UAE pledges to plant 100 million mangroves by 2030 (November 9): at the recent Cop26 meeting, many countries accepted that the world needs to come together to tackle climate change.
That the UAE has pledged to add 100 million mangroves before 2030 shows its commitment to saving the planet. With nine years left, there is time to complete this task. The UAE has repeatedly demonstrated it is up to tackling challenges, whether it is in health infrastructure, sports or education. Other nations could follow its example.
