Hosted by: United Nations Climate Change
The hosting of COP27 in the green city of Sharm El-Sheikh this year marks the 30th anniversary of the adoption of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. In the thirty years since, the world has come a long way in the fight against climate change and its negative impacts on our planet; we are now able to better understand the science behind climate change, better assess its impacts, and better develop tools to address its causes and consequences.
"In parallel with the negotiations tracks, the COP27 Egyptian Presidency has designated a number of key thematic days that will place on its agenda a number of panel discussions, roundtables and side events. The thematic days come as part of our efforts to enable a broad interaction with various stakeholders where the voice of youth, women, civil society and indigenous people will be at the center of these discussions and an enabler to its influence. Among key focus areas will be the promise of innovation and clean technologies as well as the centrality of water and agriculture to the climate crisis. The role of science will also be highlighted in addition to biodiversity loss, energy transition, decarbonization efforts and finance.”
