President Isaac Herzog still plans to attend the United Nations Climate Change Conference, COP28, in Dubai on Thursday, as confirmed by the Jerusalem Post. He is scheduled to deliver Israel’s national statement on Friday and is expected to meet with top-level diplomats to address the hostage situation and climate change. Despite the ongoing conflict, Israel has sent a small delegation to the conference, and a few Israeli climate-tech companies are also attending. President Joe Biden will not be attending COP28 and Vice President Kamala Harris will go in his place.
