Under the UN system of regional rotation, it will be the turn of an African nation to host the COP27 climate summit in 2022. With less than five months to go until COP26 in Glasgow, Tanguy Gahouma-Bekale, chair of the African Group of Negotiators on Climate Change (AGN), and Hindou Oumarou Ibrahim, former co-chair for the International Indigenous Peoples’ Forum on Climate Change, discuss African priorities at the next two UN Climate Change Conferences.
What progress are African countries making towards updating their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs)? Will countries agree sufficiently ambitious financing solutions to support a green recovery in Africa? And how can the insights and ideas of communities including indigenous peoples and youth groups be adequately integrated into the negotiations and decisions?
The event also provides a timely opportunity to take stock on the outcomes of the G7 summit and the UNFCCC session from the perspective of African countries.
This event is part of the Chatham House COP26 Diplomatic Briefing Series and is open to any diplomat or government official. If you wish to attend, please e-mail Ludivine Rebet ([email protected]).
