Considering the recently adopted G20 New Delhi Leaders’ Declaration at the G20 Leaders’ Summit and the upcoming COP28 to be held in Dubai, it is pertinent to discuss the climate issues relevant for the Global South given its significance for ensuring equitable global outcomes. According to the statement from the incoming COP presidency, COP 28 seeks to focus on four paradigm shifts: fast-tracking energy transition and reducing emissions before 2030; transforming climate finance and setting the framework for a new deal on finance; putting nature, people, lives, and livelihoods at the heart of climate action; and mobilizing for inclusivity.
This dialogue seeks to engage with experts on climate negotiations and energy transitions to advance the discourse on climate justice. It will also address two key issues from the perspective of global south - expectations with respect to global goal on adaptation; and challenges posed by minilaterals such as JETPs for the global climate finance regime.
