While the world is focused on the crisis in Gaza , the UAE is under fire amid preparations for the COP28 climate talks. 

360info experts explain what to expect. The following perspectives are available for reuse/republication under Creative Commons 4.0. 

COP28: Say climate crisis, think health crisis
Angie Bone, Karin Leder, Tin Tin Su and Tony Capon
Monash University
Safeguarding people's physical and mental health should be front and centre of national responses to climate change.

Australia's hydrogen hour has arrived
Tyra Horngren, ClimateWorks Centre
Green hydrogen could be a fossil fuels replacement in some sectors if Australia takes the immediate steps to embrace it.

Cost barrier for cutting-edge carbon solution
Deanna D'Alessandro and Sam Wenger, University of Sydney
Direct air capture of carbon dioxide faces political and technological challenges but ambitious targets have been set in fighting the climate crisis.

India's energy transition requires a delicate balancing act
Saon Ray, Indian Council for Research on International Economic
The most important issue for India is to grow sustainably while adhering to its international climate commitments and keeping its energy constraints in mind.

Energy justice key to global net zero action
Justin See, University of Sydney
Achieving net zero emissions requires compromise but energy justice for all needs to be at the heart of any decision. For all the talk, it's not happening.

Heat on UAE to give COP28 ambitious edge we need
RR Rashmi, The Energy and Resources Institute
To meet climate goals, countries will have to get far more ambitious and quickly. Here's what to look for at COP28.

Climate solutions are already in our nature
Sali Jayne Bache, Monash University, and Astra Rushton-Allan, ClimateWorks Centre
From natural seawalls to mangroves, countries are starting to combat climate change with nature-based solutions. COP28 might drive more of these efforts.

Who pays and how: the COP28 dilemma of debt and equity
Michael Dolan, Climateworks Centre in Melbourne
COP28 will take stock of the step change in ambition needed, but the gulf in climate finance promises and realities presents an obstacle to a stronger action.

Super Members Council

Dodgy financial advisers who use click-bait and cold calls to drum up business should be put in the legal freezer

Anti-hawking laws should be tightened, and current consumer protections locked into law to stop dodgy financial advisers using click-bait social media posts, cold-calls and pressure sales tactics to move unsuspecting Australians into a dud super fund and charging them thousands in fees, the Super Members Council says. The Super Members Council is calling for the Australian Government to extend anti-hawking laws, so it bans a small subset of financial advisers from using cold-calling businesses to get clients. Parliament should also swiftly pass the financial advice legislation currently before it, which locks into law the current robust consumer protections that require…
