Antigua PM Browne address COP28 in Dubai

The leaders of Tuvalu, Cook Islands, Antigua and Barbuda, and Bahamas spoke at international climate talks (COP28) in Dubai on Saturday, urging for more support for their nations already seeing the impacts of climate change.

Cook Islands Prime Minister Mark Brown called upon world leaders to consider the plight of those on the front lines of an “environmental war” that they did not initiate.

Antigua and Barbuda Prime Minister Gaston Browne criticised developed countries who contribute the most to carbon emissions, saying that the environmental crisis was a “glaring testament to a world where profits are prioritised over people and planets.”
