The United Nations Conference on Climate Change, COP28, which takes place in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates, begins on Thursday (30).
For the youth advisor of the UN Global Compact in Brazil Paloma Costa, expectations for the event, so far, “are not high.”
A CNN Radio she, who will represent the country at the Conference, explained that preliminary documents point to negotiations for further exploration of fossil fuels.
“Large countries that should take action are not inclined to change their attitude, or transfer funds from the global north to the global south”, he lamented.
At the same time, however, Paloma said she has faith that some countries, like Brazil, “can demonstrate climate action.”
“Every time positions like this are established, we gain years of life for humanity”, he argued.

COP28 brings together official authorities from countries participating in the convention and climate activists from civil society organizations.
