Road to COP27

This year’s Climate Change Summit, COP27, will be held in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt from 7-18 November 2022, aiming to build more support than ever before for climate adaptation, resilience, and loss and damage.

COP26 was a turning point where the focus on adaptation and resilience increased and we moved down the road to placing action on adaptation and mitigation on par to deliver a 1.5-degree resilient world. But the transformation from commitments into reality requires ACTION from the entire global community. This is the year to bridge that disconnect.

As we head into COP27, the global community will need to shift to ramping up action in line with the Principles for Locally Led Adaptation and ensure access and flow of effective financing to adapt to the already occurring and future impacts of climate change.

On the Road to COP27, we will be sharing a series of thought pieces, videos, and events that we invite you to get involved in and attend. Let’s close the gap between anticipated risk and action together.
