The Democratic Republic of Congo is a Party to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). We take part in the Conference of the Parties on Climate Change every year.
The COP28 will be in United Arabe Emirats, in Dubai.
Obtaining accreditation from the government of the Democratic Republic of Congo to take part in official events or missions implies compliance with certain well-defined conditions. These conditions guarantee both the effectiveness of institutional representation and compliance with administrative and logistical requirements.
It is important to note that balanced and diversified representation is an essential component of these accreditation criteria. Youth participation and equitable gender representation are not only encouraged, but also necessary to reflect the diversity of Congolese society and ensure inclusive perspectives in deliberations and discussions at official events and missions. This approach ensures that the voices of younger generations and different groups in society are taken into account in the decisions and actions undertaken by the DRC government.
To obtain this accreditation for Cop28, a number of essential criteria must be met. These include the need for each institution to nominate a maximum of three delegates, all of whom must hold a passport valid for more than six months. In addition, full preparation of the trip requires coverage of all associated costs, including a round-trip ticket, hotel booking confirmation, travel insurance and an official mission order.
We would like to express our gratitude for your understanding and cooperation in complying with these accreditation criteria established by the government of the Democratic Republic of Congo. These conditions are designed to ensure responsible participation and balanced, effective representation at official events and missions, while meeting the requirements and guaranteeing compliance with the administrative and logistical standards of the United Nations Framework Convention.
We wish to emphasize that, given the nature of the events and missions, not all accreditation requests can be accepted due to capacity limitations and other logistical constraints. However, we would like to reiterate that we value everyone's participation and commitment. For those unable to attend physically, it will be possible to apply to follow events online, to enable remote participation and ongoing involvement.
Once again, we thank you for your cooperation and understanding. Your commitment to balanced representation and diversity is essential to strengthening dialogue and action towards a more inclusive and sustainable future for the Democratic Republic of Congo.
