Forum

COP28 and the Way Forward

Although some breakthroughs have been made on many fronts at COP28, including the creation of the Loss and Damage Fund, much still remains to be seen, especially the vague term of “transition away” from fossil fuels for the mitigation front rather than phasing out of phasing down fossil fuels.

Forum

Thorny Issues Ahead of COP28

Media Dialogue Forum 5 of 2023

The achievement of the goal to keep the world's temperature below 2° C, and ideally below 1.5° C, requires that countries cut Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions at least 45% below 2019 levels by 2030. Although advances have been made in many fronts, the realization of that goal remains an uphill battle which requires international cooperation to tackle. Bangkok Tribune's 5th Dialogue Forum invites us to hear from the experts and look ahead to the key issues facing the negation rounds at the COP28 in Dubai this year.
