30 November 2023, Dubai. Last year’s CoP27 hosted for the first time a Mediterranean Pavilion, providing the basis for upgrading regional climate action this year at CoP28 in Dubai (November 30-12 December 2023) aiming at reaffirming priorities, striking new agreements and consolidating visibility of the Mediterranean region.
A strong Mediterranean presence at CoP28 is essential given the importance of climate negotiations as the first Global Stocktake of the implementation of the Paris Agreement and the centrality that the theme of energy will have, while all other main sectors of climate and environment action will also be in the spotlight.
The Mediterranean Coalition office is conceived as the proper step to achieve our shared goals, within a precisely planned strategy that started with the Mediterranean Pavilion last year at COP27. The office is an instrument of action, networking, coordination, discussion that places the Mediterranean region in the climate decision making arena. It will be the symbol of a unified identity, a place to convene stakeholders, build new partnerships and consolidate the existing ones.
