Key Climate Talks Will Take Place in Germany Ahead of COP28

Climate negotiators will gather in Germany next week for key talks that aim to lay the groundwork for the crucial 28th Session of the Conference of the Parties (COP28) in the UAE.

The Bonn Climate Change Conference will run from Monday, June 5th, to Thursday, June 15th. It is much smaller than a COP summit and largely consists of technical negotiations.

It will focus on ramping up at what was achieved at COP27 in Egypt last year and chart a course for agreement at COP28.

During the Bonn gathering, negotiators will tackle issues that are expected to dominate the talks in Dubai such as climate finance, as well as adaptation and measures to cut greenhouse emissions.

They will also discuss measures to ensure a flow of climate finance to developing countries, increase the transparency of climate action and examine the impact of climate change on agriculture and the food security.

Sultan Al Jaber, the event's President-designate and the UAE's Minister of Industry and Advanced Technology, said the Bonn sessions were critical for shaping "meaningful, pragmatic, and impactful outcomes" in the UAE.

"As the incoming presidency, we will ensure a fair, inclusive and transparent presidency that provides space for all parties to reach consensus across the whole agenda," said Al Jaber.
