How to Achieve a Just and Ambitious Outcome at COP27
Time & Location

About the event
COP27 is taking place in the midst of soaring energy and food prices and climate disasters – such as scorching heat waves, roaring wildfires and epic floods – which are imposing a terrible toll on people around the world. These interlinked crises underscore the urgent need for countries to work together at COP27 and help tackle the consequences from rising global temperatures that are falling disproportionately on developing countries and ensure affordable, clean energy for all. On Thursday October 6, join the Allied for Climate Transformation (ACT2025) consortium for a high-level webinar where speakers from around the world will set clear expectations for a positive outcome at the UN climate summit in Egypt this November. During the event, ACT2025 partners will offer a united vision for success at COP27, including addressing loss and damage, scaling up support for adaptation action, strengthening climate targets and assuring climate finance promises will be met. The event will be hosted in English with simultaneous interpretation in Spanish and French.
