Leading mayors from across C40 Cities and the Mayors Migration Council will be attending key climate migration and loss and damage related events in dialogue with national governments and international organisations at the 2023 UN Climate Change Conference, COP28, kicking off in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, on November 30th.
Building on the leadership of the C40-MMC Global Mayors Task Force on Climate & Migration and on the evidence generated through MMC’s Global Cities Fund for Migrants and Refugees, a growing coalition of mayors and city leaders is calling on national governments, philanthropists and international donors to better involve and fund cities directly, as they lead the way in driving innovative approaches to climate migration and loss and damage.
While a full agenda of the COP28 conference is available here, between November 30th and December 12th, C40-MMC mayoral and organisational leadership will be involved in the following events.
