On 24 March, Denmark and Germany agreed to build a land-based pipeline, making it possible for green hydrogen to flow cross-border from 2028.
Two days of climate dialogue have just concluded with the Copenhagen Climate Ministerial wrapping up in Copenhagen. During the ministerial, climate leaders from around the globe exchanged views and sought out common ground on issues such as mitigation, loss and damage, climate finance and adaptation. This way the ministerial serves as an important steppingstone to COP28.
The Copenhagen Climate Ministerial was hosted by Sameh Shoukry, COP27 President and Foreign Minister of the Arab Republic of Egypt, Dr. Sultan Al-Jaber, the United Arab Emirates COP28 President-Designate, and Dan Jørgensen, Danish Minister for Development Cooperation and Global Climate Policy.
Bold decisions must be made now if we are to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement. We need a roadmap to show the way for 43 pct. reductions in emissions by 2030. Therefore, we must deliver an ambitious result at the next COP.
…said Dan Jørgensen, Danish Minister for Development Cooperation and Global Climate Policy
Sameh Shoukry, COP27 President and Foreign Minister of the Arab Republic of Egypt, stated that as this was the first ministerial venue after the conclusion of COP27, he was pleased to note the level of participation and the depth of discussion during the Copenhagen Climate. He is fully confident that through this week’s discussions the road will be paved towards a successful COP28 in the United Arab Emirates and to build on the Sharm El Sheikh Implementation Plan and the other COP27 outcomes. Also very significantly, it took place on the day of the release of the IPCC’s AR6 Synthesis report.
He added that the climate crisis is growing more drastic, and we must continue to seek ambitious actions to save lives and livelihoods. The ministerial gathering in Copenhagen reflected a unity of purpose and continued commitment by all stakeholders to work together. Equitable, balanced and transparent multilateral diplomacy can take us closer to additional solutions. He also thanked Minister Jorgensen and Minister Al-Jaber for their partnership at the Copenhagen Climate Ministerial.
Guided by the solutions laid out by the IPCC, this must be our moment to course correct and to usher in a complete and urgent response that accelerates all our efforts.
