Connie Hedegaard, European Union Climate Commissioner, during a recent visit to Qatar in the run-up to the United Nations Climate Change Summit, which will be held in Doha in November.
“When you drive through the city of Doha at night, you just think, ‘Wow, look how big our challenges are when we’re talking about more energy efficiency, less energy consumption and a low-carbon world,’” Hedegaard said.
“The bright lights are all over. It would send a strong signal if Qatar came forward with concrete proposals on how they will pursue a more climate-friendly growth strategy.”
