New York - The United Arab Emirates takes part in the 15th session of the Commission on Sustainable Development (CSD), which will kick-start on Monday at UN Headquarters in New York.



Minister of Environment and Water Mohammed Saeed Al Kindi will lead a high-level delegation to the meetings, which will last until May 11. The session will focus on Climate Change, Energy, Industrial Development and Air Pollution.



At least 80 ministers from around the world will participate in the CSD session headed by Abdullah bin Hamad Al Attiya, Qatar's deputy prime minister and minister of energy and industry. UN statistics show that at least one person out four in the world does not get power services and that around 2.4 billion persons worldwide still use conventional fuel such as firewood for cooking or heating.
