About COP28

Hosted by the UAE, the 2023 UN Climate Change Conference (COP28) will be based on four themes: technology and innovation, inclusion, frontline communities, and finance.

The first ‘global stocktake’ will also take place, with parties considering their collective progress on the 2015 Paris Agreement.

Other issues on the agenda are likely to be the ‘loss and damage’ fund pledged at COP27 and whether an agreement on ‘phasing down’ or ‘phasing out’ fossil fuels can be reached.
