In December 2023, the 28th session of the conference of the parties (COP28) was held in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates. With over 85,000 participants, including 150 Heads of State and Government,  it marked the conclusion of the first ‘global stocktake’ – an opportunity for countries and stakeholders to review their progress towards meeting the goals of the Paris Climate Change Agreement.

The Development Bank of Nigeria (DBN) and the Brazilian Development bank (BNDES) both attended this year’s COP and shared their thoughts with us.
