🗞️ Driving the news: COP28, scheduled in Dubai from 30 November to 12 December, is set to be a crucial conference with 198 countries and 75,000 participants, including a strong civil society presence, to discuss global climate action

🔭 The context: The conference will review the first Global Stocktake of climate actions under the Paris Agreement, focusing on whether current efforts are sufficient to limit global warming to 1.5°C and what course corrections are needed

🌍 Why it matters for the planet: Key issues include the role of oceans and nature-based solutions like mangrove planting, which are vital for carbon sequestration and adaptation strategies
• These solutions are underfunded and will be a significant point of discussion at COP28

⏭️ What's next: The conference will also address the empowerment of youth in climate policy, with the UAE presidency emphasizing increased youth participation and the implementation of the Action for Climate Empowerment (ACE) agenda

💬 One quote: "The question looms: Will this conference usher in true transformative, system-wide change, or will it be marked by familiar promises?" (Susie Ho, Monash University)

📈 One stat: Nature-based solutions could provide up to 37% of the greenhouse gas reductions needed by 2030 under the Paris Agreement.
