Oman’s EA launches workshops on sectoral plans to reach zero neutrality

Muscat: The Environment Authority has launched workshops on sectoral plans for carbon neutrality. Organized by the National Net-Zero Programme in Muscat, the workshops seek to follow up and implement the national strategy for an orderly transition to carbon neutrality. They constitute an effort to reach a unified implementation plan, while at the same time adding a number of projects to achieve the interim goals based on the motives.

During the first week (3-5 September 2023), the workshops discuss the electricity sector’s targets to reach zero carbon emissions, the initiatives and projects implemented in the sector, major challenges and the capabilities required to address them.

Then, the programme will proceed to other sectors, including the sectors of cities and buildings, transport, industry, oil and gas sector and other possible sectors.

The mechanisms of action in this programme focus on resolving challenges and providing all means to meet the Sultanate of Oman’s goal of achieving zero carbon emissions by 2050.

Representatives of government and private sector establishments taking part in the programme include Oman Investment Authority (OIA), Nama Power and Water Procurement, Nama Electricity Distribution, the Authority for Public Services Regulation (APSR), Nama Dhofar Services, OQ, and Hydrom.

Oman was among the earliest countries that announced a strategic approach to achieve zero carbon emissions by 2050, following the directives of His Majesty Sultan Haitham bin Tarik in October 2022.

Accordingly, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change placed Oman in the list of countries that endorsed a national strategy for carbon neutrality.
