In this video, Professor Dave Reay talks about what he expects from COP28 with regard to commitments from countries around the world that may keep the hope of limiting warming to 1.5C above pre-industrial levels. This would significantly reduce the risks and impacts of climate change, as stated in the Paris Agreement.

Professor Reay considers this to be the most important COP since Paris because it is the first global stocktake on what nations need to do to reach the Paris climate goals.

He speaks about the goals countries should be aiming for:

  • Tripling renewable energy capacity
  • Doubling the rate of energy efficiency improvements
  • A substantive loss and damage fund
  • A global methane pledge
