Different foundations and organizations from countries in the Global South will present proposals on how to increase and improve climate ambition at COP28

Within the framework of the commitments raised for COP28, which will take place in the city of Dubai in the United Arab Emirates, various regional strategic grantees that work to develop knowledge for decision makers and promote climate action in India, Indonesia, the continent African, Mexico, and Brazil, will share experiences and solutions to the challenges posed by the current climate crisis and to achieve compliance with the commitments of the Paris Agreement.

The objective of the existence of this Pavilion is to propose a common agenda from the countries of the Global South and strengthen a learning community.

More than 30 conferences will be held in the Pavilion with the participation of more than 90 experts, who will discuss the needs and proposals that arise from each of the countries and regions of the participating organizations. In this sense, some of the conference topics are: fair energy transition; local and subnational emissions reduction: empowerment of women and indigenous peoples based on the use of accessible renewable energy; how to promote a more inclusive global and multilateral carbon pricing framework from a multi-region and identification perspective of solutions from the use of green hydrogen for different social sectors, among others.

“Our Pavilion seeks to be a space that provides valuable information and facilitates the exchange of points of view related to the common challenges that our organizations face,” said Adrián Fernández, Executive Director of the Mexico Climate Initiative.

‘This Pavilion presents a unique opportunity for various regional climate foundations to highlight their country-specific best practices and deliberate about the potential for replicating these successful approaches within Global South nations.’ said Mr Koyel Kumar Mandal, Chief of Programmes, Shakti Sustainable Energy Foundation.

As we near COP28, we must note this significant collaboration of regional climate foundations from the global south, driving a clear objective which is to increase the climate ambition in their respected regions. And we need to celebrate the important role that such young, vibrant foundations are playing in the climate space. Saliem Fakir our Executive Director: African Climate Foundation
