The 2023 UN Climate Change Conference (COP28) began on November 30th in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE). The conference will continue until December 12th. It takes stock of progress on the Paris Agreement reached in 2015.
The EU and its member states will make a substantial financial contribution to the climate damage fund at COP28. The world’s first climate “loss and damage” fund is expected to secure several hundred million dollars by the end of the conference to address the destruction caused by climate change in poor countries. The EU’s announcement pressures other developed countries to follow suit.
The EU, the US, and the COP28 host are also rallying support for a global deal to triple the capacity for renewable energy generation and double the improvement of energy efficiency by 2030.
