University College Cork (UCC) is sending a delegation of students, academics, and researchers to the upcoming COP 28 global summit in Expo City, Dubai.
COP 28 (30 November until 12 December) will bring together nations to assess global efforts to limit the levels of climate change against targets set by the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, the Kyoto Protocol, the Paris Agreement, and other international accords.
Over 500 researchers are engaged on sustainability at UCC and its research has shaped Ireland’s key national climate policies. Eleven delegates will form UCC’s group at COP28 including MaREI’s Dr Archishman Bose and Claudia Hihetah.
This year, UCC has redistributed three of its badges granting access to COP to climate activists from Columbia, Kenya, and South Africa in order to increase the representation of people from the Global South at the discussions.
