Dossier COP27: Delivering for people and the planet

On the 20th November 2022, the 27th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP27), which took place in the Egyptian coastal city of Sharm el-Sheikh, concluded with the decision to establish and operationalise a loss and damage fund.

Welcoming the decision and calling the fund essential, United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres said that more had to be done to drastically reduce emissions. “The world still needs a giant leap on climate ambition,” Guterres noted.

“The red line we must not cross is the line that takes our planet over the 1.5 degree temperature limit,” he stressed, urging the world not to relent “in the fight for climate justice and climate ambition”.  

“We can and must win this battle for our lives,” Guterres concluded.

From the 6th to 20th November, COP27 held high-level and side events, key negotiations and press conferences, hosting more than 100 Heads of State and Governments, over 35,000 participants and numerous pavilions showcasing climate action around the world and across different sectors.
