UN Climate Change Conference (COP28)
November 28 - December 10
JOIN THE WORLD OF #ACTIONISM
Actionists are people – just like you – who are rising to meet the climate change challenge.
They are the change-makers, needle-movers, and momentum-builders providing the hope, optimism, and ingenuity needed to solve humanity’s most urgent and ambitious challenge.
COP28 UAE will be a milestone moment when the world will take stock of its progress on the Paris Agreement. The first Global Stocktake (GST) will provide a comprehensive assessment of progress since adopting the Paris Agreement.
This will help align the efforts on climate action, including measures that need to be put in place to bridge the gaps in progress. The COP28 UAE presidency will work to ensure that the world responds to the GST with a clear action plan.
COP28 stands for the 28th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. In this guide we’ll call it COP; you might also hear this referred to as the UN climate change convention.
At the annual climate COP, delegates from nearly every country on Earth negotiate global goals for tackling climate change, present their individual countries’ plans for contributing to those goals, and report on their progress.
