COP28: What’s at stake?
Ahead of COP28 in November, the Programme on Global Politics and Security hosts a webinar discussing what the most pressing issues at COP28 are and the views of the world’s largest emitters.
The world gathers in Dubai for the 28th annual climate conference. COP28 certainly comes at a critical moment for international climate action. Only over the last year, climate impacts have been severely felt worldwide and temperature records are repeatedly broken. Much more must be done and limiting global warming to 1.5°C will require urgent and monumental collective action. COP28 marks the conclusion of the first global stocktake in which progress is assessed. The world is currently not meeting the Paris Agreement’s goals and at COP28 governments will have to accelerate climate action.
In this panel, experts explain and discuss issues that will arise at the summit and give the view of the world’s largest emitters and most important actors – China, the United States, the EU and India.
