On 27 November 2023, the U.S. Embassy in Abu Dhabi issued a Message to U.S. Citizens, which reads in part as follows: “The 2023 United Nations Climate Change Conference, known as COP28, will take place in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, from November 30 to December 12, 2023. U.S. citizens should be aware of logistical challenges due to the large number of anticipated attendees for the event, road closures, and increased law enforcement measures.”
