COP28 Wraps up

The 28th Conference of the Parties (COP28) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) drew to a close recently falling short of the highest ambitions many had hoped for.

COP28 called on Parties to triple renewable energy capacity and double energy efficiency improvements by 2030. While this is a welcomed step in the right direction, the outcome is widely criticised for including language countries could use to substantiate delayed action on phasing out fossil fuels. We need more substantial commitments to accelerate the energy transition for a net zero future.

Parallel to the parties' negotiations in the official UNFCCC blue zone, Monash University convened a two-week program of workshops and dialogues bringing together global climate leaders.

The Monash Energy Institute brought energy, indigenous, university, and youth leaders together to host impactful discussions and workshops on energy transition at Monash University’s COP28 pavilion in the blue zone. Dialogues delved into the role of universities in global net zero financing, emphasised the crucial involvement of youth in shaping sustainable energy solutions, and discussed how indigenous principles and intergenerational practices can be applied to the just energy transition outlook. Monash Pavilion’s full program is available at this link, and videos are available to watch with energy talks featured on Dec 4 (link) and Dec 5 (link).
