There is real hope out there, COP28 President says

Dubai, Dec 4 (Prensa Latina) In the first four days of COP28 we set high standards for results; there is real hope out there, said the president of the 28th UN Climate Change Conference, Sultan Al Jaber. During a press conference, Al Jaber revealed the hope expressed by people he has spoken to, that this meeting will be a major turning point and not missing the opportunity to deliver a real and tangible paradigm shift to correct course towards the right path of keeping 1.5 degrees Celsius within reach.

“Let’s remember why we are all here. We are all here because we have issued a very clear call to action. The UAE takes on this task with humility and responsibility and fully understands the urgency of this issue,” he stressed.

He noted that so far at COP28 they were able to bring the United States and China together in an unprecedented commitment to reduce methane and other non-carbon dioxide (CO2) gases across the economy. These gases are more than 80 times more harmful than CO2, he warned.

Al Jaber also revealed pride in having issued the first declarations on health and food systems, considered two huge priorities for the presidency’s action agenda. Three additional statements on hydrogen, refrigeration and gender will be announced in the coming days, he confirmed.
