An Azerbaijani pavilion to function at the UN Climate Change Conference

Azerbaijan will, for the first time, be represented by its pavilion at COP28, the 28th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP28) to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) to be held in the city of Dubai of the United Arab Emirates.


Created by joint organizational activity of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation and the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources of Azerbaijan within the framework of COP28, which will continue from November 30th to December 12th, the national pavilion will cover the theme “Pioneering sustainable solutions for climate resilience”.


At the pavilion of an interactive format, information will be provided about Azerbaijan’s policy on the climate change, measures taken by the Azerbaijani government towards reducing greenhouse gases released into atmosphere, its activity on mitigation and adaptation, and other projects in this sphere.  


Azerbaijan has undertaken to reduce the emission of gases creating heat effect by 35%, bringing it up to 40% by 2050. Fulfilling obligations undertaken on the Paris Accord adopted in 2015 and actively working in this direction has been a priority matter for the government of Azerbaijan.


Getting together at COP28, representatives of some 200 countries are going to coordinate their activities on global climate issues. The area where the event is going to take place consists of two zones: At the “Blue Zone”, accredited delegations will take part in official talks, the World Summit on the activities on climate issues, panel discussions, round-tables, and cultural events. Pavilions of the participating countries too will function in the “Blue Zone”. The “Green Zone” will be open to the public, being considered a platform to build a dialogue and increase awareness of climate change.  


The 28th session of the UN Climate Change Conference will turn into a platform uniting people in the direction of tackling a climate change and combatting its effects through events, exhibitions, and global initiatives.
