Every year world leaders gather at the Conference of the Parties, or COP, to devise solutions to what amounts to a growing existential crisis for humankind: our rapidly heating planet.

The United Arab Emirates is hosting COP28 this year. The goal of the conference is to decrease emissions and protect the planet.

Are the goals of this meeting truly in sync with the goals of the hosts?

NPR's Miles Parks speaks with NPR international correspondent Aya Batrawy from COP28.
