The Summit opened with speeches by the UN Secretary-General, the president of the United Arab Emirates and King Charles III of the United Kingdom.
Some 160 Heads of State and Government as well as representatives of State parties will be making national statements on how they are addressing climate change issues and their countries' plans to scale up emissions reduction commitments, as the world warms at an unprecedented rate.
COP28 provides an appropriate platform for achieving climate ambitions and strengthening sustainable development, in the interests of present and future generations. It is also an opportunity for States and non-state parties to consolidate their cooperation and combine their efforts on climate action.
The Conference marks the conclusion of the "Global Stocktake", the first assessment of global progress in implementing the 2015 Paris Agreement.
