The 2023 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP 28) will convene from November 30 to December 12, 2023, at the Expo City in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE).
This event comes at a crucial time as the world is struggling with record-breaking temperatures and increasingly extreme weather events, making urgent and imperative climate action.
Over twelve days, world leaders, negotiators, government representatives and relevant stakeholders will meet to take stock of progress on the Paris Agreement and engage in forward-looking discussions to find concrete solutions to tackle climate change.
What sets this year’s conference apart is the heightened focus on food and agriculture, more heightened than ever.
The World Farmers’ Organisation (WFO) will be a prominent presence at COP 28, with a significant delegation of over 70 farmer representatives, led by President Arnold Puech d’Alissac, actively participating in the conference and bringing a strong united voice to the negotiations of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change and the Food Systems and Climate Action Agenda of the COP 28 UAE Presidency.
Throughout the event, WFO delegates will get involved in several panels and roundtable sessions to reiterate that farmers hold an essential part of the solution to climate change, and it is imperative to enable them to fulfil their role in achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement.
Farmers, who suffer the brunt of the climate crisis, are also the most dedicated to finding solutions. Their participation and engagement at such an influential decision-making forum are paramount to ensuring their efforts are valued and properly recognised as solutions in the battle against climate change.
