Free Virtual Meeting (on UN Day 2023) ahead of COP28:
This year (2023), the UAE will host the 28th Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP28) which will take place from 30 November until 12 December at Expo City Dubai in order to unite the world towards agreement on bold, practical and ambitious solutions to the most pressing global challenge of our time. However, time is running out fast and realizing the seriousness, the Global Science Academy (GSA) has announced Virtual Meeting on United Nations Day, 24th October 2023 i.e. ahead of COP28 (particularly in context of COP28’s draft theme of 04th December 2023 on NATURE, LAND-USE & OCEANS), to contribute at its level and with the support of experts and professional, wishes to explore ways and means to accelerate the response of global citizen. And, thus implementable practical climate solutions are to be shared not only with the leaders of governments, international and regional organizations, financial institutions, the private sector and civil societies etc. but also with leaders of businesses, cities, regions etc. reminding pre-2030 Nationally Determined Contributions as were agreed in Glasgow; updated net-zero targets; energy transition plans with commitments to no new coal, oil and gas; fossil fuel phase-out plans; more ambitious renewable-energy targets; Green Climate Fund pledges; and economy-wide plans on adaptation and resilience. G20 i.e. the Group of Twenty (G20) which comprises 19 countries (Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Republic of Korea, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Türkiye, United Kingdom and United States) and the European Union will also be looked at their emission-cuts as G20 members represent around 85% of the global GDP with their around two-thirds of the world population.
Bearing the fact that Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has once again highlighted the urgency to act because the damage from the climate crisis is already extensive, and global greenhouse gas emissions remain at record levels. The world needs to limit global warming to 1.5°C degrees above pre-industrial levels so as to prevent the worst impacts. The Global Science Academy (GSA) call for the experts to contribute with their view-points in the proposed virtual meeting, the link of which will be shared later on. GSA will appreciate to have experts’ brief opinions even before the proposed meeting at the official email id: email@example.com. Those communicating authentically will be included in our “global think-tank”. Contributions preferably required to fit under COP28’s draft theme of 04th December 2023 on NATURE, LAND-USE & OCEANS. Since Global Science Academy (GSA) engaged in various activities pertaining to UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development, and thoroughly know the potential of Ocean in coping Climate Change hence we expect innovative solutions from professionals of this domain. Problems of marine liters affecting ecosystems are also encouraged to highlight as prospective contributions.
