The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) binds over 190 countries to work together to tackle climate change. Each year the parties to the convention meet to review progress. The 27th Conference of Parties (COP27) took place in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt, from 6-18 November, 2022.
IIED researchers and partners led and presented at events throughout COP27. Our events called for more ambitious targets and actions to reduce carbon emissions, addressed debt relief for climate and nature, championed locally led adaptation to deliver a climate resilient world, and highlighted the need for climate finance to reach those that need it the most, as well as supporting negotiators from the LDCs.
During COP27 IIED and partners prioritised the calls for more ambitious targets and actions to reduce carbon emissions, the need for more climate finance to reach Indigenous People and Local Communities to tackle climate change, and for the international community to do more to address developing country debt, nature and climate, tackling these together for a sustainable future.
