The world is in a precarious position as many countries grapple with wars, geopolitical tension, economic instability and social unrest. At the peak of these threats are the impacts of climate change as the planet gradually wears down from carbon emissions.

Nigeria is not immune to climate degradation, with floods, erosions, and heat waves becoming more frequent and devastating. In other parts of the world, climate impacts are manifesting through record temperatures, large-scale wildfires, storms, desertification and droughts.

These issues and more will be at the centre of deliberations at the 28th Conference of Parties (COP28), organised by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

From November 30 to December 12, world leaders, policy analysts, international organisations, and relevant stakeholders will gather in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE), to iron out solutions for limiting global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees.


The conference is anchored on reducing emissions through climate change mitigation, building climate-resilient societies, and investing in solutions to counter the effects of climate change. Climate finance, loss and damage fund, adaptation, and just transition will also feature heavily on the agenda.

President Bola Tinubu is scheduled to deliver a national statement at the world leaders’ summit which will take place on December 1 and 2.

The presidency said Tinubu’s address  — themed ‘Unite, Act, and Deliver’ — will capture Nigeria’s stance on various issues, including renewable energy and climate financing.


The Nigerian contingent also aims to work on establishing “new and deeper bilateral partnerships” to implement the country’s energy transition, Article 6 Projects, internationally transferred mitigation outcomes (ITMOs), technology transfer, capacity building, and methane mitigation.

For updates on the decisions reached by global players and how those plans will affect Nigeria, TheCable duo of Vivian Chime and Mansur Ibrahim are on the ground in Dubai for first-hand coverage.

Chime is the pioneer head of TheCable’s climate change desk and the Africa journalism manager for Climate Tracker while Ibrahim is a fellow of the US International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) and an award-winning photojournalist.

Collectively, they will bring readers breaking news, timely analysis and all the behind-the-scenes updates at the all-important COP28.
