COP28 : Is this COP held in Dubai doomed to be a failure ?
Corentin Gentil (LOCEAN)
Séminaire du LOCEAN.
COP28 will take place from November 30 to December 12 in Dubai, an oil-producing country, and will be chaired by the CEO of the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company. Every year, the COP is presented as the « COP of the last chance », and we often get the impression that these negotiations are failures.
What really happens at a COP ? What is negotiated ? Do things move forward ? I’ll try to answer these questions from the perspective of both a civil society eye and a national delegation negotiator eye, by first recalling the context of COP28 and how COP27 went.
I’ll also talk about the Science – Policy-making interface, on which I’ve been working on for the past two years, and the (issues of) logistics of conferences attended by tens of thousands of people.
