DAR ES SALAAM: President Samia Suluhu Hassan left the country on Wednesday, for Dubai, United Arab Emirates, to attend the COP28 Climate Summit.
The summit, themed “Unite, Act, and Deliver,” is scheduled to take place at Expo City from November 30 to December 12, 2023.
The COP 28 summit, also known as the 28th United Nations Climate Change Conference or the Conference of the Parties of the UNFCCC, comes at a critical juncture.
This year is already marked as the hottest ever recorded in human history, with the climate crisis causing unprecedented havoc on lives and livelihoods across the globe.
Anticipated to be the largest United Nations climate summit to date, COP 28 is expected to bring together more than 70,000 participants, including heads of state, government officials, industry leaders, academics, and representatives from civil society organizations.
The COP 28 Summit presents a unique and invaluable opportunity to Tanzania to draw investors from diverse sectors while simultaneously providing access to low-interest loans for addressing the challenges of climate change.
Every year, the COP meets to determine ambition and responsibilities for climate action, and to identify and assess climate measures.
