The Conference of the Parties (COP) to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) is an annual international climate summit that brings together world leaders from governments, the private sector, academia, and civil society to work together on solutions to tackle climate change. This year, COP28 will be held in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), with an estimated 70,000 attendees expected.
If your organisation is participating in COP28, it is important to remember that Dubai, the UAE host city of COP28, like any large metropolis, possesses certain risks for travelers and visitors. To ensure the utmost health and safety of your COP28 attendees, it is imperative to navigate the intricacies of medical, logistical, and security support in the UAE. This will help to effectively avoid incidents, and unfamiliarity with the healthcare system, and address cultural considerations.
