Description
Remarks from Dennis Francis, President of the 78th Session of the United Nations General Assembly

"The messages I will take with me to the COP28 include:

The need to conclude work and operationalize the funds and funding arrangements for Loss and Damage. Least Developed Countries, Landlocked Developing Countries, and Small Island Developing States need these resources to reconcile the impacts of climate change on their communities.
The need to support the COP28 Presidency’s bid to triple renewable energy capacity. This is the only sure way to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels and keep 1.5 alive.
The need to scale up support urgently and dramatically for adaptation, including delivering on a Global Goal on Adaptation and exponentially driving up finances.
And finally, but most importantly, the need for unity and solidarity. The international community must demonstrate to the people of the world that we can deliver. We need a win, and COP28 can be that win."
