COP28 Summit Pledges Climate Action


Sudan Events – Sumaya Sayed

Heads of state and world leaders have gathered to address the UN’s COP28 summit in Dubai.
COP28 President Dr. Sultan al-Jaber kicked up high level talks on Friday addressing world leaders, saying: “As the largest gathering of world leaders to attend a COP summit you are collectively demonstrating your real commitment to climate action.”
He said the world had collectively made history on Thursday by committing to a historic deal to finally launch and capitalize a fund that helps the most vulnerable countries deal with the worst effects of climate change.
Al-Jaber continued: “I will do everything in my power to channel the momentum you generate at the summit into an ambitious response to the global stocktake and to keep the North Star of 1.5 within reach.”
Simon Stiell, Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), also addressed the summit, saying climate change effects are not being seen in “some far flung parts of the world.”
“It is by continent by continent, region by region,” he added. “None of us are immune.”
