INVITE: COP28 Stakeholder briefing – What is on the negotiating table this year?

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade is inviting individuals and representatives of organisations with an interest in Aotearoa New Zealand’s international climate change response, to a stakeholder briefing session with our Climate Change Ambassador; Kay Harrison, and COP28 negotiating team.

The aim is to share views in the lead-up to the 28th Conference of Parties (COP28) to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). This year’s COP is confirmed to be held in Dubai, UAE (30 November – 12 December).

The briefing session will be on Monday 20th November from 5 – 6.30 pm, NZ time, in webinar format. There will be opportunity to ask questions as time permits.

This webinar will have two main purposes:

–     Firstly, to hear from our Climate Change Ambassador Kay Harrison about the UAE as COP28 Presidency’s priorities and what key outcomes will be negotiated

–     Secondly, to provide logistical information to New Zealanders travelling in person to COP28 on ‘Party overflow’ badges

You can register your interest in attending here to receive a link to join. They will send out a more detailed agenda and information on how to join to people who have registered closer to the date.
