Climate Home News is hosting ‘Oil, carbon and loss: navigating Cop28’, a series of three online events to guide you through Cop28. Join us to hear from the experts and ask your questions.
Expect drama at this year’s UN climate summit in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Emotions are running high as the Israel-Palestine conflict tests geopolitical alliances. In a region economically dependent on oil and gas exports, the imperative to quit fossil fuels will be front and centre. Countries at the sharp end of the climate crisis finally have loss and damage finance in sight and are fighting for a fair deal.
Key themes of Cop28 include the energy transition, loss and damage finance, and carbon trading rules. Where does recent climate diplomacy leave us and what is still to play for?
The speakers for this event are:
- Avinash Persaud, advisor to Barbados’ prime minister Mia Amor Mottley, member of loss and damage transitional committee
- Rachel Kyte, former advisor to the UN secretary general on climate, former head of Sustainable Energy for All, now co-chair of the Voluntary Carbon Markets Integrity initiative
- Arunabha Ghosh, CEO of the Council on Energy, Environment and Water
This discussion will be led by Megan Darby, the editor of Climate Home News. Register in the Zoom discussion using this link to be able to send your questions.
