Dakar Declaration on Climate Change 2023



What is the Dakar Declaration on Climate Change 2023?

Key Point: The Dakar Declaration is a formal statement issued by ministers representing the world's 46 Least Developed Countries (LDCs).

Purpose: It outlines their collective demands and expectations for the COP28 climate conference (the 28th Conference of Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change).

Focus: The declaration emphasizes these key areas:

● Urgent need for global emission reductions.


● Increased climate finance to help LDCs adapt to climate change impacts.

● Operationalizing the newly established Loss and Damage Fund.

● An ambitious global review process (Global Stocktake) to assess climate action progress.

Why is the Dakar Declaration Important?

Highlighting Disproportionate Impacts: LDCs contribute minimally to global emissions (around 1%) yet face some of the most severe impacts of climate change. Their declaration draws attention to this injustice.

United Voice: By presenting a unified front, the LDCs amplify their voices and increase their bargaining power in the international climate negotiations.

Influencing COP28 outcomes: The declaration aims to shape the agenda and decisions at COP28, driving action on the most pressing issues faced by the world's most vulnerable nations.
