From November 6th until the 18th, COP27 will take place in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt. With the constant increase in climate-caused disasters worldwide, the necessity of of expanding ambitions and funding to deal with climate change grows every day. Negotiators, scientists, and climate activists will come together to work on how to implement the Paris Agreement. Rich, industrialized countries must step up to right climate injustice, debt injustice, and social injustice through commitments to solving the climate crisis—time is running out.
Central to the debate at COP27 will be efforts to secure commitments for financing to address the climate losses and damages already devastating countries and communities in the Global South and to scale up support and shift all financing flows away from fossil fuels towards truly green investments that support peoples' human rights and protect the planet. Check out new thinking and relevant analysis on what needs to change and how to do it.
