The 28th Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP 28) is poised to be an important event, held in Dubai, UAE, from November 30 to December 12, 2023. This gathering will bring together representatives from about 200 countries, as well as delegates and observers spanning non-governmental institutions, think tanks, non-profits, businesses, and the media.
The negotiations this year will discuss several critical issues, with the highlight being the Global Stocktake, an agenda item tasked with evaluating the collective progress towards the climate goals outlined in the Paris Agreement. A possible outcome may include a shared commitment to tripling global renewable energy capacity and doubling energy efficiency by 2030. Additionally, there is a push to include language on the global phase-out of all fossil fuels, building upon COP 26's decision to "intensify efforts towards the phasedown of unabated coal power." The breakthrough at COP 27 regarding loss and damage resulted in the creation of a fund.; efforts at COP 28 will focus on operationalizing this fund.
The Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) and Down to Earth (DTE)'s delegation will attend the conference in Dubai from November 30 to December 12, 2023. We will provide updates on the proceedings and insightful analyses of the diverse themes slated for discussion, including the Global Stocktake, adaptation, mitigation, the Loss and Damage Fund, and cross-cutting discussions on finance.
