Webinar: Union of Concerned Scientist (UCS) and NAACP. The Importance of Science and Justice at COP28. January 17, 2024.

Union of Concerned Scientists.


January 17: The Importance of Science and Justice at COP28

In December, world leaders at the United Nations annual climate talks (COP28) adopted the UAE Consensus, an agreement that represents a critical step forward in addressing fossil fuels, the root cause of climate change, but still falls significantly short in its considerations of finance and equity provisions needed to ensure a just transition to clean energy and climate resilience around the world.
The Union of Concerned Scientists invites you to join a virtual discussion to learn more about our efforts to highlight scientifically necessary outcomes needed at COP28, how we engaged on the ground during the contentious climate negotiations, and where we go from here.
UCS and NAACP experts will share reflections on how the negotiations played out regarding climate science, policy, and corporate influence, and the environmental and climate justice implications of the final international agreement.

Date: Wednesday, January 17
Time: 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. ET / 11:00 AM – 12:00 p.m. PT

Rachel Cleetus, PhD, Policy Director, Climate & Energy Program
