During an inspection tour of Expo City Dubai, Sheikh Mansour toured the venue of the World Climate Action Summit, the sites of the pavilions of countries and organisations, and the halls that will host all meetings of the parties to discuss the negotiating texts.
His Highness Sheikh Mansour was accompanied by Dr. Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber, Minister of Industry and Advanced Technology and President of COP 28, along with a number of members of COP28 Higher Committee.
He listened to a briefing from the COP28 team on the most prominent events that the conference will witness, which is expected to be attended by more than 160 heads of state and government, 85,000 participants, and more than 5,000 representatives of the media accredited by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
