Antigua and Barbuda recently participated in preparatory meetings with the Alliance of Small Island Developing States (AOSIS) ahead of COP28, which is scheduled to begin on November 30th in Dubai.
AOSIS is a coalition of small island and low-lying coastal countries that advocate for sustainable development and climate action, especially in the face of the disproportionately adverse impacts of climate change on their territories.
Antigua and Barbuda’s inclusion in AOSIS represents a significant milestone in the country’s commitment to addressing the urgent climate challenges faced by small island nations.
By aligning with AOSIS, Antigua and Barbuda hopes to amplify its voice on the global stage and effectively advocate for the concerns and interests of small island developing states in the upcoming COP28 discussions.
As the world prepares for COP28, Antigua and Barbuda has pledged to actively engage and collaborate with AOSIS and other member states to drive impactful climate action, foster resilience, and ensure a sustainable future for all.
The delegation from the twin island nation, which comprised Ambassador Diann Black-Layne, Ezra Christopher, and Zachary Phillips, represented the country at the preparatory meetings.
