With climate change impacts wreaking increasing devastation across the world, it is more urgent than ever that governments and other stakeholders deliver on the commitments made in the ‘Glasgow Climate Pact’ adopted at COP26 in Glasgow in November 2021.
Shortly before COP27, Chatham House convened a hybrid discussion to explore:
What progress or regressions have been made since COP26 on mitigation, adaptation, finance, and loss and damage?
What are the key issues to watch, what are the main challenges and what would be a ‘good outcome’ at COP27?
How are negotiations affected by the transformation of the food systems, the shift from fossil fuels and increasing visibility of climate impacts?
How is the current geopolitical context impacting climate action, in particular the war in Ukraine?
