🗞️ Driving the news: This year's Cop29, dubbed the "Cop of peace," aims to utilize the platform of the UN climate summit to promote peace among nations by encouraging a "Cop truce" during its duration, akin to the Olympic truce observed during the Olympic Games

🔭 The context: The summit is scheduled for November in Baku, Azerbaijan, a region surrounded by ongoing conflicts such as in Ukraine and Israel-Gazaù 
• Azerbaijan's top advisor highlighted that, despite these challenges, Cop29 could serve as a catalyst for peace through shared environmental goals

🌍 Why it matters for the planet: The link between climate change and national security is emphasized, with potential increases in food and water scarcity, migration, and border tensions as climate impacts worsen
• Such issues make environmental cooperation crucial for global peace and stability

⏭️ What's next: Discussions and planning are ongoing for the proposed "Cop truce." The idea is still in its early stages and will require more extensive dialogue and agreement among participating nations.

💬 One quote: "Azerbaijan continues and will exert additional efforts to make Cop yet another success story with regard to peace, and to make Cop29 a Cop of peace alongside the climate action issue," said Hikmet Hajiyev, foreign policy adviser to the president of Azerbaijan.
