Rare at COP28
Advancing local leaders and local solutions on a global stage
From November 30 to December 12, global leaders will gather in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, for the 28th United Nations Conference of the Parties Climate Change Conference (COP28). The conference is an opportunity for nations, corporations, and global institutions to commit to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and building adaptation and resilience in the face of climate change.
At COP28, Rare will engage NGO partners, federal ministers, and institutional donors to advance nature-based solutions to climate change, community-led management of natural resources, and behavior-based strategies for promoting the adoption of sustainable practices so both people and nature thrive.
