Joe Biden will not attend the conference

The American president will skip COP28 in Dubai. Neither Joe Biden’s agenda nor that of Vice President Kamala Harris, both released by the White House, mention a trip to Dubai this week. The UN climate conference, which takes place from Thursday to December 12 in the United Arab Emirates, is expected to bring together a record of more than 70,000 participants, according to the Emirati presidency, including Pope Francis.

Joe Biden’s program includes a visit to Colorado to promote American investments in wind energy, a meeting with the Angolan president and the lighting of the national Christmas tree. A US official confirmed that the US president does not plan to attend COP28 this week or a second session towards the end of the negotiations.

A meeting far from essential for American presidents

According to the same source, who requested anonymity, Washington is still considering the possibility of sending a senior official to Dubai. John Kerry, the US climate envoy, also a former secretary of state and former senator, will lead the negotiations for the United States. The official did not communicate the reason for the decision of Joe Biden, whose attention has been focused since last month on the war between Israel and Hamas. The American president is also seeking to highlight his projects domestically, less than a year before the presidential election.

It was not usual for the US president to attend all UN climate conferences before Joe Biden arrived at the White House. The Democratic president went to COP26 in Glasgow in 2021 – to announce the return of the United States to the fight against global warming after the withdrawal from the Paris agreement decided by his predecessor Donald Trump – as well as to the COP27 organized last year in Sharm. el-Sheikh in Egypt.
