Live Dialogues and Presentations from the Al-Attiyah Foundation Pavilion at COP28

Al-Attiyah Foundation Schedule

Date: 30-11-2023 - 13-12-2023

After a year of extreme weather around the world, including the hottest 12 months ever recorded, world leaders, scientists, activists, and others will convene at the 2023 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP28) in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

COP28 comes at a critical juncture. Nations have been submitting their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) over the past five years, and the subsequent assessment of the results, or ‘Global Stock Take,’ will be scrutinised during the conference.

The Al-Attiyah Foundation pavilion at COP28 will serve as a hub for critical knowledge sharing and networking as the world plots and plans the next few years of global action to slash the greenhouse gas emissions causing climate change.

Visitors to the pavilion will have the opportunity to learn more about the Foundation’s work and participate in eight dialogue sessions. These sessions will focus on net-zero targets, pathways to a world powered by sustainable resources, General Electric’s energy transition commitments, carbon markets, hydrogen production, green finance, natural gas’s role in the transition, and water in the Middle East. For further details on each dialogue session, please refer to the following pages.
