The UAE has set forth three extra priorities for COP28, which include accelerating the energy transition to reduce emissions before 2030, revamping climate finance by fulfilling past commitments and establishing a new finance agreement, and prioritizing the well-being of nature, individuals, and livelihoods in climate action.

Land and environmental defenders are at the forefront of the climate crisis, protecting the world's forests and biodiversity. Without their representation at the table, we cannot solve the climate crisis.

The UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples is of utmost importance and should be respected, rather than being overshadowed by the interests of local communities, says Naw Ei Ei Min. The adverse effects of climate change affect Indigenous Peoples more severely than others, and thus, it is imperative to take action rather than engage in negotiations. We cannot afford to wait for more suffering before taking action.

David Alberto Hernández Palmar, who is a Wayuu Indigenous filmmaker, highlights the importance of Indigenous-led media platforms in showcasing the voices of Indigenous Peoples who are leading the fight against environmental challenges, such as climate change. These media channels employ various forms of communication, including audio-visual, podcasting, and radio programs, to share Indigenous stories and perspectives with a broader audience.

During every COP gathering, individuals and organisations who defend the land and environment, as well as Indigenous communities, voice their need for increased safeguards for their territories against industries that harm the environment, including mining, logging, and industrial agriculture. Climate organizations like Global Witness frequently send delegates to advocate for quick and ambitious measures to address the climate emergency.

The Conference of the Parties (COP) to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) is an international climate summit, which is held annually unless the Parties (the countries involved) decide otherwise. At COPs, world leaders gather to work together on solutions to tackle climate change. There are now 198 Parties (197 countries plus the European Union) to the Convention, constituting near universal membership.

Each year a different country becomes the COP president, in charge of organising and running that year’s meeting. Usually this means that the host city moves each year, too. Any new agreements which are made at COP tend to be named after the host city, e.g. the 2015 Paris Agreement or the 2021 Glasgow Climate Pact. The 28th meeting will be held in Dubai.

One of the top priorities at COP28 is to finalize the inaugural Global Stocktake (GST), which serves as the primary means of evaluating advancements towards the objectives established in the Paris Agreement. The GST presents nations with a chance to evaluate their current climate initiatives and determine areas where additional action is necessary.
