President Ranil Wickremesinghe is set to lead a high-level Sri Lankan delegation of approximately 80 members to the UN Conference of Parties (COP28) summit in Dubai next week.
The delegation includes key figures such as Foreign Affairs Minister Ali Sabry, Power and Energy Minister Kanchana Wijesekera, Environment Minister Keheliya Rambukwella, Climate Change Presidential Advisor Ruwan Wijewardene, and Foreign Affairs Advisor Dinouk Colombage.
Additionally, four Parliamentarians will join the delegation, reflecting a comprehensive and diverse representation.
The technical delegation will consist of 15 negotiators and ministry officials.
The overflow delegation, consisting of private sector organisations and one of Sri Lanka’s biggest-ever contingents of 20 youth delegates, forms the largest part of the representation at the climate summit.
Sri Lanka will host its first-ever pavilion at the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change Conference of Parties in Dubai next week, where multiple climate-related policies and lobbies are set to be spearheaded by Sri Lanka.
