Our Analyst Dr. Sofia Helena Zanella Carra penned this article together with Miriam Garcia, Associate Director of Political Engagement at CDP Latin America. The article explains that COP28, held in Dubai, emphasised diplomacy as a dynamic process across various policy arenas.

The central theme was the adoption of the Global Stocktake (GST), aiming for a 1.5°C temperature increase by 2100 and tripling global renewable energy capacity.
