With the 2023 Conference of the Parties of the UNFCCC (COP28) approaching, InterRegional for Strategic Analysis has launched a new Climate Change program. The program aims to raise public awareness about climate change in preparation for COP28, which will be held from 30 November to 12 December 2023 in Expo City Dubai. The Climate Change program will contribute to developing ideas for mitigating climate change and its global impacts in various spheres as well as strengthening societal engagement with COP28.
This InterRegional for Strategic Analysis program will include convening various discussions about climate change, including workshops, panels, and brainstorming sessions. It will also produce short video clips and easy-to-understand infographics conveying current statistics, analyses, and other data on different aspects of climate change using innovative frameworks. This aligns with InterRegional for Strategic Analysis’s efforts to present complex issues in a format that is accessible to a wide audience of experts and non-specialists alike. InterRegional also plans to unveil activities to raise awareness and provide training for university students on climate change issues.
Leading up to COP28, InterRegional’s Climate Change program will provide a rich array of in-depth studies and analyses on climate change and its various social, economic, political, and environmental repercussions.
As part of its Climate Change program, the InterRegional for Strategic Analysis team will also cover COP28 from various analytical angles, including evaluating different countries’ nationally determined contributions (NDCs) and the challenges for achieving these targets in light of available resources and current conflicts. It will also examine policies that have been developed to reduce carbon emissions and the effects of these policies on energy markets. The program will consider other issues that are raised during the conference and different perspectives on global efforts and challenges with regard to reaching climate targets set during previous UN Climate Change conferences as well as the Paris Agreement.
