Gewessler is negotiating at COP28 for the first time

Climate Protection Minister Leonor Gevsler (Green Party) will enter into political negotiations at the UN World Climate Conference in Dubai on Friday. The second week will focus on the transition to green energies, and follow-up decisions to improve climate plans will be discussed during the international assessment process. COP28 is officially scheduled to run until December 12.

And in Dubai, nearly 200 countries are grappling with how to achieve the 2015 Paris climate goals. The goal is to limit global warming to no more than 1.5 degrees by 2050 – a goal that is becoming increasingly unrealistic: according to the current report by the agreement UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, climate plans still suffer from major gaps. “Every day at the World Climate Conference, you meet people who are doing everything they can to protect our climate. That’s encouraging – and it’s important to convey that. Because it is still within our hands to achieve the Paris climate goals,” he said. Minister Goesler before their arrival.

While the United States and the European Union are calling for Dubai to exit fossil fuels in order to achieve this goal, other oil and gas producing countries are skeptical. Energy companies, many of which were represented at the conference, want to continue using fossils, but at least want to reduce emissions of methane, a greenhouse gas.
