International delegates are gathering in Dubai to find a deal that will make a real difference in tackling the planet’s climate issues at the 28th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP28) to the United Nations Framework Convention on ClimatWorld Timese Change (UNFCCC). Anticipation is high for COP28, with over 70,000 delegates, including representatives from UNFCCC member states, participating in the pivotal event.

This gathering is expected to facilitate the forging of agreements to confront the climate crisis between global leaders and stakeholders, focusing on critical goals such as limiting the global temperature increase to 1.5 C, aiding climate-vulnerable communities, and aiming for net-zero emissions by 2050.

The conference will not only see participation from leaders and delegates from different countries but also a diverse group of voices including business magnates, youth activists, climate experts, indigenous peoples, media representatives, and other influential figures.

“Over 160 world leaders are headed to Dubai, because only cooperation between nations can get humanity back in this race. But COP28 cannot be just a photo-op. Leaders must deliver – the message is clear,” said UN Climate Change Executive Secretary Simon Stiell via a statement sent byWorld Times the UNFCCC to the media. “And as leaders leave Dubai after the opening summit, their message to their negotiators must be equally clear: Don’t come home without a deal that will make a real difference.”

“We don’t have any time to waste. We need to take urgent action now to reduce emissions. At COP28, every country and every company will be held to account, guided by the north star of keeping 1.5 C within reach,” said COP28 President Dr. Sultan Al Jaber.

“All parties should be prepared to deliver a high ambition decision in response to the global stocktake that reduces emissions while protecting people, lives, and livelihoods,” Al Jaber added.
