  • Arab Group welcomes 'successful first global stocktake' at COP28

    "On behalf of the Arab Group, I express our gratitude to the efforts of all the state parties in order to have a successful first global stocktake," Saudi official Albara Tawfiq tells the COP28 conference. Nearly 200 nations meeting at the UN climate talks in Dubai on Wednesday approved a first-ever call for the world to transition away from fossil fuels, tackling the top culprit of climate change after years of avoidance although at-risk countries said far more action was needed. The text stopped short of backing appeals during the summit for a "phase-out" of oil, gas and coal, which together account for around three-quarters of the emissions responsible for the planetary crisis.

Following all-night negotiations, the draft deal proposed by the Emirati presidency of the COP28 summit in Dubai would, if adopted, mark the first time that all fossil fuels are addressed in the 28-year history of international climate conferences.
