Your quick guide to the COP28 outcomes

quick guide

Here’s a note from David Carlin:

COP 28 just concluded. Here’s my overview of the key outcomes and agreements.

My overall view: “The conference reached landmark agreements on loss and damage and a clear ambition to transition away from fossil fuels. However, in the final accounting, much of the agreement feels like incrementalism. Against the urgency of the moment, and a year of record-breaking heat, small steps are not enough when giant leaps are needed.”

In this article, I cover the good and bad of the final texts on:
-Loss and damage
-Climate finance targets
-The Global Goal on Adaptation (GGA)
-The Global Stocktake (GST) and fossil fuels
-Carbon markets
-Just transition
-COP 29 host
-COP 28 overall
