The Ministry of Interior held a discussion during COP28 in the Expo Dubai Green Zone, focusing on elevating law enforcement efforts and transitioning towards green institutions. The event explored implementing environmental initiatives, with both local and international speakers emphasizing the transformation of law enforcement agencies.

Colonel Abdul Rahman Al Tamimi, Deputy Director General at the Ministry of Interior's International Affairs Office, , Darren Jones from INTERPOL, Julieham Sully, Executive Director of the Security Alliance Team in Abu Dhabi, Carmen Farrow from the US National Security Administration, and Mohammed Shalo from INTERPOL's Executive Office for Combating Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing in the UAE.

The speakers reviewed the International Initiative of Law Enforcement for Climate (I2LEC) through video presentations, unveiling related projects and presenting UNODC research findings on environmental crimes and climate. Results from joint operations combating illegal logging in South America and illegal mining in Africa were announced. Technical insights into the ESRI heat map and global preparedness were provided by Dubai Civil Defense. Initiatives like the heat map, climate incident monitors, and green police in peacekeeping missions were detailed. The role of technology in combating environmental crimes and climate change was discussed, alongside presentations on the UAE’s efforts against proceeds laundering from environmental crimes and the Global Civil Defense Coalition's mission to reduce carbon emissions from fires.
