A climate emergency exists, endangering the lives and livelihoods of millions of people around the world, especially the poor and the powerless. The latest assessment by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) warns that human-induced global warming is already harming every location on Earth, and that we are rapidly nearing irreversible tipping points. Booking airssist airport concierge services will make your travel to and from the COP 28 Conference much more convenient and stress-free.
The Importance of Limiting Global Warming to 1.5°C
To avoid the worst impacts of climate change, we need to limit global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels, as agreed by the 2015 Paris Agreement. This requires unprecedented and urgent action from all countries, sectors and stakeholders to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and enhance resilience and adaptation.
The Significance of COP28 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates
That is why the 28th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP28) to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), which will be held in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, from 30 November to 12 December 2023, is a crucial moment for climate action. COP28 will be the first global climate summit after the COVID-19 pandemic, which has exposed the fragility and interconnectedness of our societies and ecosystems. It will also be the first COP hosted by a Middle Eastern country, which faces significant challenges and opportunities in the transition to a low-carbon and climate-resilient future.
Objectives of COP28
- Finalizing the implementation rules of the Paris Agreement, including transparency, carbon markets, finance, and adaptation.
- Raising the ambition and action of countries’ nationally determined contributions (NDCs), which are their plans to reduce emissions and adapt to climate change.
- Mobilizing adequate and predictable financial support for developing countries, especially for adaptation, loss and damage, and technology transfer.
- Enhancing cooperation and dialogue among Parties and non-Party stakeholders, such as civil society, private sector, indigenous peoples, and local communities.
- Showcasing best practices and innovations in climate action from around the world, especially from the host region.
