La OMC se dispone a poner de relieve la contribución del comercio a la acción por el clima en la Conferencia de las Naciones Unidas sobre el Cambio Climático CP28, que se celebrará en Dubai (Emiratos Árabes Unidos) del 30 de noviembre al 12 de diciembre. La información sobre la participación de la OMC en la CP28 ya está disponible en un portal, que abarca el “Día del Comercio” y un sitio específico con el programa de actividades del Pabellón del comercio, organizado conjuntamente por la OMC, la Cámara de Comercio Internacional (CCI), el Centro de Comercio Internacional (ITC) y la Conferencia de las Naciones Unidas sobre Comercio y Desarrollo (UNCTAD).

The WTO Secretariat is co-leading with the United Arab Emirates COP28 Presidency the first ever “Trade Day” at a COP on 4 December in cooperation with UNCTAD, ICC, the World Economic Forum (WEF) and the Abu Dhabi Department of Economic Development (ADDED).

Several high-level events are being lined up for Trade Day, including an event titled “Global Leaders Unite to Promote A Roadmap of Trade Policy Options for a Just and Ambitious Global Response To Climate Change.” Director-General Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala will participate in several high-level events, such as the World Climate Action Summit and the Business and Philanthropy Climate Forum.

Throughout the conference, activities will be held at the Trade House pavilion, a dedicated space to spark discussions and solutions on how trade can help drive climate and sustainable development actions. The pavilion is hosted by four international agencies: ICC, ITC, UNCTAD and the WTO. Activities at the Trade House will focus on accelerating climate action through trade-led development, using coordinated and inclusive approaches to ensure a just transition to a low-carbon economy.
