CAN’s Briefing for SB58
Six months before COP28 in Dubai, UAE, we are yet to get a clear signal that this year’s climate summit will deliver on a commitment towards an equitable and just phase out of fossil fuels, alongside efforts to scale up investments in renewable energy and energy efficiency.
The fact that this COP will be presided over by a fossil fuel executive, the Chief Executive Officer of ADNOC, puts particular emphasis on the need for civil society groups to ensure it is not hijacked by fossil fuel lobbyists and ends up as a greenwashing fest of hollow promises.
We are in a race against time in this climate emergency. Governments must use the time and opportunity when they meet in Bonn to prepare for an ambitious outcome at COP28 that is in line with the scale of the climate crisis we face. This means a clear plan to end the dependence on fossil fuels – oil, gas and coal – and to deliver support to those impacted by climate disasters by delivering more adaptation finance and ensuring the operationalisation of the Loss and Damage fund. The Global Stocktake must serve as a moment of accountability and lay out a roadmap for updated and enhanced national climate targets that will keep global warming below 1.5oC.
