The 28th edition of COP took place in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and brought together representatives from nearly 200 countries from 30 November to 12 December 2023. COP28 focused on four priorities: transitioning to clean energy; centring nature, people, lives and livelihoods; delivering on climate finance; and, mobilising inclusivity. Like in previous editions, ECDPM was on site at COP28 and contributed to the discussions taking place.

    We have been looking at the effects of the climate crisis for many years, especially in the broader context of Europe-Africa relations. Like in previous editions, we will share our analysis and opinions, particularly on green transition, food systems, the gender-climate nexus, the cascading and cross-border effects of the climate crisis and the efforts to finance adaptation.
