UC San Diego Delegation to Attend Annual UN Climate Conference in Dubai
A multidisciplinary cohort of UC San Diego scientists and students are attending the 2023 Conference of the Parties, or COP28, in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates. Following a year in which many climate records have been broken, the United Nations (UN) climate conference is focused on limiting and preparing for future climate change.
The UC San Diego group, which includes climate scientists, public health researchers and policy experts, aims to advocate for scientific-driven solutions to address climate change, participate in high-level discussions that address complex climate issues, and advance diplomatic actions that affect climate mitigation.
UC San Diego’s Scripps Institution of Oceanography and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution are also organizing the Ocean Pavilion, which brings together 35 global partners across ocean science, engineering, policy and philanthropy to underscore the integral role of our ocean in climate and serve as the central hub to exchange ideas on addressing the climate crisis by leveraging ocean science and solutions.
Featured in this video are four UC San Diego researchers whose work on climate change informs the delegation: Wael Al-Delaimy, UC San Diego Herbert Wertheim School of Public Health and Human Longevity Science Professor; Natalia Erazo, Scripps Institution of Oceanography PhD Candidate; David Victor, School of Global Policy and Strategy and Scripps Institution of Oceanography Professor; Isabel Rivera-Collazo, School of Social Sciences (Anthropology) and Scripps Institution of Oceanography Assistant Professor.
