President Kiir and his accompanying delegation returned to Juba from United Arab Emirates’ commercial hub Dubai, where they participated in the COP28 Summit on climate change.

Over the last two weeks, hundreds of world leaders, policymakers and other stakeholders gathered in the Gulf nation to discuss the mitigation of climate change crisis.

Presidential Affairs Minister, Bangasi Joseph Bakosoro said President Kiir held several meetings with other heads of State to discuss bilateral relations on the sidelines of the summit.

On Friday Kiir met Sudan’s former Prime Minister Abdallah Hamdok to discuss the peace efforts on the country.

At this year’s UN climate change conference in Dubai – COP28, displaced climate activists have been speaking up on behalf of millions of other refugees and internally displaced people who are being disproportionately impacted by our changing climate.

The UN’s climate change body says that global greenhouse gas emissions need to fall by 45 per cent by the end of this decade compared to 2010 levels, to meet the goal of limiting global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius.

The 1.5C target is crucial to avoid the most damaging impacts of climate change, according to the UN’s climate body, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
