COP28 Higher Committee Chalks Path for The Global Climate Event in UAE
H.H. Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and Chairman of the Higher Committee overseeing preparations to host the COP28 UAE chaired a high level meeting this week.
At the meeting, the path ahead for the global climate summit which will be hosted at Expo City Dubai from 30 November to 12 December 2023, was outlined.
The UAE Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation affirmed the country’s commitment to build on outcomes made at COP27 in Sharm el Sheikh, and to delivering meaningful progress at the Emirates Climate Conference.
H.H. commended Egypt on the progress made in Sharm el Sheikh at COP27, its leadership in unifying the 197 countries and the EU around climate action.
Egypt also guided the COP process towards the establishment of a new ‘loss and damage’ fund to support the world’s most climate-vulnerable countries, which is creditable, he said.
"After the success in gathering the world at Expo 2020 Dubai, the UAE will leverage its outstanding track record as a trusted global convenor to ensure that COP28 will be inclusive, transparent, and pragmatic," H.H. said, as reported in Emirates News Agency (WAM).
"COP28 aims to transform and urgently accelerate climate action to meet the commitments the world has made," His Highess added.
