COP Climate Summit

COP28 will be hosted by major oil producer, United Arab Emirates – one of the largest producers of the same oil and gas driving the climate crisis and preventing the mass transition to cheaper, cleaner energy sources. Key agreements were reached at COP27 in 2022, held in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt - including countries reaffirming their commitment to the Paris Agreement goal of limiting global temperature rise to 1.5C above pre-industrial levels, which is essential to avoid the worst impacts of climate change, and the establishment of a loss and damage fund - a monumental decision that had been called for by developing countries for many years. But much, much more ambitious action is needed. The choices and actions taken this COP28 will impact us all - and future generations to come.
