Palau joins global call for Fossil Fuel Treaty at COP28

In a resounding declaration at the COP28 High-Level Segment in Dubai, President Surangel Whipps Jr. of Palau solidified their commitment to combat the climate crisis. Palau, an oceanic state facing imminent threats due to climate change, became the ninth nation to formally advocate for a Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty.

President Whipps Jr. highlighted the urgent need for action, emphasizing the crucial role of the ocean in their livelihoods and the escalating consequences of disregarding planetary limits
"We must protect it in return," he urged.
Palau's vulnerability to the climate crisis, including sea-level rise, coastal erosion, and extreme weather events, underscores the imperative for decisive global action. Their call for a treaty echoes the concerns of other Pacific Island states, amplifying the urgency for a just and equitable transition away from fossil fuels.
This rallying cry for a Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty has garnered extensive global support from diverse stakeholders, including the World Health Organization, Nobel Laureates, parliamentarians, civil society organisations, and subnational governments. The movement gains momentum with each endorsement, affirming a growing global consensus for a swift and equitable phase-out of fossil fuels.
