A defining moment in the fight against climate change.
Science has established beyond doubt that the window for action is closing rapidly. In November 2022, Egypt will host the 27th Conference of the Parties of the UNFCCC (COP27) in Sharm El-Sheikh, with a view to building on previous successes and paving the way for future ambition.
A golden opportunity for all stakeholders to rise to the occasion and tackle effectively the global challenge of climate change facilitated by Egypt on the African continent.
It is the 2022 United Nations Climate Change Conference
Egypt assumes the incoming Presidency of COP 27 with a clear recognition of the gravity of the global climate challenge and appreciation of the value of multilateral, collective and concerted action as the only means to address this truly global threat.
As we approach COP27, we are committed to support an inclusive, transparent and party-driven process to ensure timely and adequate action.
From Stockholm, Rio, Bali, Kyoto, Durban, Paris, Katowice, Glasgow to Sharm El-Sheikh
Global political will, supported by science heading to a paradigm shift through just and ambitious transformation.
IPCC has provided the credible science, successive COP decisions laid out the collective governmental actions, The Convention and its agreements outlined the principles, legal obligations and guidelines for collective action.
Recent IPCC reports have highlighted the gravity of the climate crisis and the need for immediate and sustained political will, impactful action and effective cooperation. Building on Glasgow's momentum, we seek to further enhance the scope of deliverables across the climate action agenda.
We believe there is a need for progress on the ground on all aspects of our work; mitigation, adaptation, finance, loss and damage.
We are aware of the challenges and the opportunities related to climate action, and the potentials and needs of all including those who are in vulnerable situations and the vulnerable communities and we stand ready to engage with all parties to accelerate climate action.
