UAE Begins 100-Day Countdown to COP28

The largest yearly climate summit in the world, COP28, will be held in the UAE in just 100 days.

A worldwide climate change strategy will be discussed and developed in the UAE by 70,000 international leaders, policymakers, and scientists.

On Tuesday, the COP28 UAE Presidency used the occasion of the event being 100 days away to invite the world to come to the UAE prepared to make transformational and meaningful progress toward addressing the climate issue.

The first Global Stocktake will be held at COP28 to assess progress toward the goals and aims set out in the Paris Agreement at COP21.

The UAE will facilitate a process in which all stakeholders will agree on a clear path to accelerate progress towards a just, orderly, and equitable global energy transition, as well as a "leave no one behind" approach to inclusive climate action.

At its heart, COP28 strives to promote change on all levels rather than just a conversation among leaders.

Marking 100 days to COP28, Sultan bin Ahmed Al Jaber, Minister of Industry and Advanced Technology and COP 28 President-Designate, said: “Eight years after the Paris Climate Agreement, it is now time to reignite hope through unity and action.

“The countdown to COP28 has begun, marking a pivotal moment to shape our shared future. COP28 embodies collective action, a platform where leaders and citizens from every corner of the world unite to forge a sustainable path forward.

“The four pillars – fast-tracking the energy transition, fixing climate finance, focusing on people, lives and livelihoods and reinforcing everything with full inclusivity – are our guiding lights, illuminating the way to a greener, healthier, more resilient world. At COP28, the world must unite, act and deliver.”
