COP28: Canada Daily Highlights - December 1, 2023

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, Dec. 1, 2023 /CNW/ - Today's roundup of key events, announcements, and outcomes from the Canadian delegation at COP28:

Minister's reflection for today 

"The end of my first day leaves me with the sense of pragmatic optimism. Developing countries have been calling for a fund to address loss and damage for decades, and after impressive coordination between all nations, the COP28 Presidency has kicked off the conference with the operationalization of that fund and raised over $400 million, which is historic. I'm pleased to count Canada among the first contributors."

The Honourable Steven Guilbeault, Minister of Environment and Climate Change

Daily event and announcement summary
Quote of the day

"Canada continues to stand by developing countries as they confront the effects of climate change. We know that our efforts will only be maximized when we work together with partners to make a real difference in the lives and livelihoods of communities most at risk. Let this new loss and damage fund be a catalyst for strengthened partnerships and swift action to help those who need it most."

? The Honourable Ahmed Hussen, Minister of International Development
