Dubai, 6 December 2023 (WAI): Encouraging global cooperation to keep global warming to 1.5°C is more critical than ever as parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) convene for the 28th Conference of the Parties (COP28).

With increased extreme weather events, rising sea levels, and disturbances to ecosystems, the globe is already feeling the disastrous effects of climate change, as UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres said in underlining the severity of the issue.

He said these effects will only worsen without swift and decisive action.

In keeping with the objectives of the Paris Agreement, Guterres urged international leaders to take decisive action to keep global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius.

Additionally, Guterres highlighted the crucial problem of loss and destruction brought on by climate change effects to which underdeveloped nations are ill-prepared.

To assist underdeveloped nations in recovering from catastrophic weather catastrophes and constructing the infrastructure required to withstand future climate threats, he recommended the creation of a specific loss and damage finance fund.

Adopting the Paris Agreement at COP21 in 2015, COP28 presents a crucial chance to advance the accord’s objectives.

Compared to pre-industry levels, the Paris Agreement seeks to keep global warming below 2°C, ideally around 1.5°C.

An important turning point in the battle against climate change is COP28. The summit might spark international action and create a sustainable future.
