The 28th Conference of the Parties on Climate Change (COP28) will take place from November 30 - December 12, 2023 in Dubai.
As we continue to feel the impacts of climate change with record temperatures across Europe and the US, wildfires and seeing the hottest week ever recorded globally at the beginning of July, this Summit could be one of the most important yet. The organizers of COP28 have announced a two-week thematic program, structured by the following “cross-cutting themes”: technology and innovation, inclusion, frontline communities and finance.
We have been tracking the negotiations to date, and as always our lawyers will be on the ground in Dubai to provide you with key takeaways from the conference.
