About GLF Nairobi 2023: ‘A new Vision for Earth’
The GLF Nairobi 2023 Hybrid Conference, held on October 11 and 12, convened global thought leaders to set the stage for COP28, the upcoming UN Climate Change Conference. This pivotal event mobilised action on critical issues affecting humanity, biodiversity, and our planet.
The conference featured two focused days: Day 1 centered on “Africa’s Sovereign Solutions,” exploring pathways to a sustainable and prosperous future for the continent. Day 2, dedicated to climate, aimed to craft a “Survival Guide for a Planet in Crisis,” paving the way for a fairer world ahead of COP28.
GLF Nairobi brought together a diverse coalition of influential voices, ranging from scientists, activists, and Indigenous leaders to financiers, women, youth, policymakers, and private sector representatives. As a united front, we collectively championed change and passionately advocated for meaningful action in these pivotal times.
About Carlos Rodriguez
Carlos Rodriguez, CEO and Chairperson at the Global Environment Facility emphasizes a nuanced perspective on the global challenges confronting humanity:
“I don’t think we’re facing a triple planetary crisis. What we have is an ecological collapse. The life-supporting system of planet Earth is deteriorating, constituting one of the two main problems humanity must confront. The first issue is the ecological collapse at various scales, primarily at a global level. The second most critical challenge, in my opinion, is humanity’s inability to collaborate, cooperate, and reach agreements necessary to address these immense global challenges.”
