Intro to COP27
The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP27) gets underway in the green city of Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt this Sunday. The annual conference brings together heads of state, climate experts, and campaigners from across the world. Over the 12-days, they will address growing concerns around the climate crisis.
A recent statement from the UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, warned that “We must close the emissions gap before climate catastrophe closes in on us all”. This was after the release of the UN Environment Programme’s (UNEP’s) Emissions Gap Report 2022, which highlights the “world is headed for 2.8 degrees of global heating by the end of the century” based on current Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs).
The aim of this years Climate Conference is to strengthen the commitments that were made at COP26 in Glasgow last year, which includes emissions reductions, scaled-up adaptation efforts and enhanced flows of appropriate finance.
