    SOCIETY  27 February 2024 - 10:41

    John Denton, Secretary General of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), and Minister of Ecology and Natural Resources Mukhtar Babayev have discussed preparations and future collaboration.

    During the meeting preparations for the 29th session of the Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP29), which Azerbaijan will host in 2024, were discussed, and views on prospects for further cooperation were exchanged, the ministry told Report.

    To recap, Azerbaijan has been selected as the host country for the 29th session of the Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP29), marking a significant milestone in the country's commitment to environmental stewardship and global climate action. This decision underscores international recognition of Azerbaijan's growing role in addressing climate change challenges and its capacity to convene and lead discussions on this critical issue.

    Scheduled to take place later this year, COP29 will provide a platform for world leaders, policymakers, scientists, and civil society representatives to come together and formulate strategies for mitigating climate change and advancing sustainable development goals. As the host nation, Azerbaijan is poised to facilitate meaningful dialogue and collaboration among diverse stakeholders with the aim of reaching a consensus on key issues related to climate change mitigation, adaptation, and finance.

    Azerbaijan's selection as the host of COP29 reflects the country's efforts to prioritize environmental sustainability and align with global initiatives aimed at combating climate change. With its diverse geographical landscape, Azerbaijan is particularly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change, including changes in precipitation patterns, rising temperatures, and extreme weather events. By hosting COP29, Azerbaijan seeks to raise awareness about these challenges and mobilize collective action to address them effectively.

    Preparations for COP29 are already underway, with Azerbaijan actively engaging in consultations and coordination with relevant international organizations, government agencies, and civil society partners. The conference is expected to feature a comprehensive agenda covering a wide range of topics, including emissions reduction targets, renewable energy deployment, climate finance mechanisms, and adaptation strategies.

    In addition to the official negotiations and meetings, COP29 will provide a platform for showcasing innovative solutions, sharing best practices, and fostering partnerships to accelerate progress towards a low-carbon and resilient future. Azerbaijan is committed to ensuring that COP29 serves as a catalyst for concrete actions and tangible outcomes that contribute to global efforts to address the urgent threat of climate change.

    As preparations for COP29 gather momentum, Azerbaijan looks forward to welcoming delegates from around the world to engage in constructive dialogue, exchange knowledge and experiences, and forge consensus on meaningful climate action initiatives. By working together collaboratively, the international community can pave the way for a more sustainable and prosperous future for generations to come.
