Preparing for COP 27
The latest Climate Change Conference, hosted at the World Convention Centre in Bonn, Germany, is coming to a close. Designed to prepare for the UN COP 27 Conference in November this year, the convention is the first gathering of its kind since COP 26 and takes place against a backdrop of accelerating climate impact, energy security worries and geopolitical tension.
COP 27 will be hosted in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt, and will build on the outcomes of COP 26 where a number of issues were addressed and pledges made in the key areas of mitigation, adaptation, support and finance.
The conference in Bonn opened with the Executive Secretary of the UNFCCC, Patricia Espinosa addressing delegates stating, “We urgently require political-level interventions and decisions in each of these areas in order to achieve a balanced package. Doing so will send a clear message to the world that we are headed in the right direction. Because the world is going to have one question in Sharm El-Sheikh: what progress have you made since Glasgow?"
