Switzerland’s first financial delegation at COP28
The COP (Conference of the Parties), probably the world’s best-known climate conference, meets every year to tackle the challenges of climate change. States come together to negotiate on actions to be taken and review compliance with agreements reached. The 28th edition (COP28) takes place in Dubai from 30 November to 12 December 2023. This year, for the first time, two Swiss delegations are travelling to the conference: the official negotiating team, comprising representatives of the authorities and selected figures from civil society, which attends every year; and the Building Bridges delegation of high-ranking representatives from the Swiss financial sector headed by the SIF, which is making its inaugural visit.
