COP27

07 November, 00:00 - 18 November 2022, 00:00

The 27th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP27) to the UNFCCC will take place in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt, from 7-18 November 2022.

COP27 will build on the momentum generated by COP26, where the Glasgow Pact was signed by over 200 countries and consists of a range of items, including strengthening efforts to curb greenhouse gas emissions, build resilience to climate change and to provide the necessary finance for both.

The COP27 action agenda will focus on full implementation of pledges and commitments, mobilizing collective efforts for ambitious emission reductions from different sectors, enabling flows of appropriate finance and delivering on the ground on time and at scale.

The COP27 presidency will organize a series of events and dialogues across thematic days including finance, water, biodiversity, gender, youth and civil society.

Ipieca and COP

Ipieca has attended every COP since the inaugural event, held in Berlin in 1995. During COP events we make use of our UNFCCC observer status to attend the negotiations and hold our own side events and meetings to support debate on relevant topics.

We also take part in events held by governments and other organizations. Once COP events are finished, we provide our members with briefings on the event and ensure the COP outcomes are reflected in our work programme.
