Perspectives: Views from COP28 in Dubai
A team from the University of California Center for Climate, Health and Equity (CCHE) attended the first week of the 28th UN Climate Change Conference (COP28) as observers representing UC and health communities.
The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is hosting the conference, which took place Nov. 30 through Dec. 12 in Dubai. This is the first time that health considerations are incorporated into the formal agenda. Also at the conference, countries took stock of whether we are on track to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius.
CCHE’s Founding Co-Director Arianne Teherani, Ph.D., Managing Director Sapna Thottathil, Ph.D., and Associate Director of Strategy and Communications Jennifer Monroe Zakaras, MPH, have shared a series of perspectives from their time in Dubai.
