Interview wit Regional Ambassador to UN COP26 on Climate Change and COP27

In an interview with Bestoon Khalid, while she was on a trip to the Kurdistan Region to Iraq, in eraly June 2022, Janet Rogan, Regional Ambassador for the Middle East and Africa to the UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP27) spoke of the need for diversifying the economy in Iraq and the Kurdistan Region in order to tackle climate change.

The interview was coinciding with ongoing dust storms across the country, occurring at an unprecedented frequency. Given that the COP27 conference in November this year is to be held in Egypt, and next year’s in the United Arab Emirates, Rogan stated this is a “fantastic opportunity for the Middle East to come together for issues common across the boundaries.”
