President Cyril Ramaphosa is set to lead South Africa’s delegation to the 28th Conference of Parties (COP28) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in Dubai. The conference, which runs from 30 November to 12 December 2023, will see global leaders and experts gather to discuss and address critical issues related to climate change and sustainable development.

The President’s participation, scheduled for 1 and 2 December 2023, demonstrates South Africa’s commitment to addressing the pressing challenges posed by climate change. Minister of Forestry, Fisheries and the Environment, Barbara Creecy, will then lead the country’s delegation for the remainder of the conference.

South Africa’s delegation will include representatives from both the government and the business sector, underscoring the importance of partnerships in tackling climate change and promoting sustainable development.

The COP28 will also feature the first Global Stocktake (GST), providing a comprehensive assessment of progress made since the adoption of the Paris Agreement in 2015. The stocktake will help align efforts on climate action and identify measures needed to bridge gaps in progress. Additionally, it will assist parties in preparing their next nationally determined contributions to the Paris Agreement, with a focus on raising ambition and accelerating climate action.

Furthermore, the conference will convene the 18th Meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol (CMP18) and the fourth Meeting of the Parties to the Paris Agreement (CMA) sessions, allowing for critical discussions and decision-making on global climate goals and commitments.

In parallel to his participation in COP28, President Ramaphosa will also lead government’s engagement with the Matjhabeng Local Municipality in the Free State. The Presidential Imbizo, held under the theme “Leave no one Behind,” will focus on addressing service delivery challenges and promoting social cohesion within the region.

The President’s interaction with the Matjhabeng Local Municipality is part of a broader effort to assess progress made in delivering essential services and addressing community concerns since the last Presidential Imbizo in the province.

Moreover, President Ramaphosa will host the Inaugural Science, Technology, and Innovation Presidential Plenary on 12 December 2023. The plenary aims to bring together leaders from government, industry, academia, and civil society to discuss the progress and challenges in the National System of Innovation. Additionally, it will explore ways for Science, Technology, and Innovation (STI) and skills development to positively impact the South African economy.
