The two-day event, which commenced yesterday, was officially inaugurated by Dr. Sultan bin Ahmed Al Jaber, President-Designate for COP28 UAE, who called for global unity on climate action. The opening ceremony was followed by a plenary round table and breakout sessions focusing on adaptation, mitigation, and means of implementation.

During the Plenary Roundtable discussion titled “Towards a Transformational Global Stocktake,” H.E. Adonia Ayebare highlighted the interconnectedness of climate action and development, emphasizing that global stocktaking should be the primary objective under adaptation.

He emphasized that it serves not only as a platform for accountability but also for continuous improvement. Furthermore, H.E. Ayebare reaffirmed Uganda’s commitment to collaborate with all stakeholders as it assumes the chairmanship of the G77.
