The World Climate Action Summit represents the High-Level Segment of the 28th Conference of Parties (COP-28) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Scheduled from November 28 to December 12, 2023, COP-28 is presided over by the UAE, the statement highlighted.

The summit on December 1-2 will gather heads of states and governments, along with leaders from civil society, business, youth, indigenous peoples’ organizations, frontline communities, science, and various sectors. The discussions will focus on actions and plans aimed at scaling climate action.

Union Environment Minister Bhupender Yadav is scheduled to take part in high-level events and roundtables during the 28th session of the annual climate talks (COP28). The discussions will encompass topics such as finance for climate goals, emissions reduction, adaptation to climate impacts, and the transition to a green economy with inclusivity.

The Conference of Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) presents a crucial opportunity to drive collective action in addressing the shared challenge of climate change. The upcoming climate conference is anticipated to involve intensive negotiations, particularly concerning the operational aspects of the fund designated to provide financial assistance to developing and impoverished nations for coping with climate impacts, along with funding for adaptation measures.

The Global South is likely to advocate for the Global North to engage in rapid decarbonization and significantly enhance financial and technological support to constrain global warming within the 1.5 degrees Celsius limit. There may be expressions of discontent among developing countries regarding unfulfilled commitments, particularly the yet-to-materialize USD 100 billion pledged by wealthy nations by 2020.

Certain nations, notably the European Union, are expected to advocate for a global agreement aimed at phasing out unabated fossil fuels at COP28.

At COP-26 in Glasgow, Prime Minister Modi unveiled five specific targets under the banner “Panchamrit” as India’s unprecedented commitment to climate action. Additionally, he announced the Mission Lifestyle for Environment (LiFE) during the same event.

Climate change has remained a focal point of India’s G20 Presidency, and significant strides have been documented in the New Delhi Leaders’ Declaration and other outcomes during this tenure. COP-28 presents an opportunity to build upon these accomplishments.

During his visit, Prime Minister Modi will engage in bilateral meetings with select leaders participating in the summit, as mentioned in the MEA statement.
