Egypt To Host COP27 in 2022

Must read

The 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference, also known as COP26, is the 26th United Nations Climate Change conference. It is scheduled to be held in Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom, between 31 October and 12 November 2021, under the co-presidency of the United Kingdom and Italy.

COP26 is the first COP the UK has ever hosted. With the first climate conference taking place in Berlin in 1995, other cities have hosted the summit including Paris in 2015, where the famous Paris agreement was signed. 

Sharm El Sheikh to host COP27

The environment-friendly city Sharm El Sheikh in Egypt will play host to COP27 in 2022. 

It will go ahead a year later than planned, with COP26 in Glasgow postponed until 2021 despite the original planned date for 2020. The conference will be held from 7th to 18th November 2022. 

On 20 September, Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi expressed his country’s interest in hosting the COP27 summit representing the African continent.

Sharm el-Sheikh (Arabic: شرم الشيخ‎, IPA: [ˈʃɑɾm eʃˈʃeːx]) is on the southern tip of the Sinai Peninsula, on the coastal strip along the Red Sea. Its population is approximately 73,000 as of 2015 and Sheikh is the administrative hub of Egypt’s South Sinai Governorate.

The city and holiday resort is a significant centre for tourism in Egypt, while also attracting many international conferences and diplomatic meetings. In fact Sharm El Sheikh (meaning “Bay of the Sheikh”) is also known as the “City of Peace” in reference to the large number of international peace conferences that have been held there.

The city experiences a subtropical arid climate with typical temperatures range from 18 to 23 °C (64 to 73 °F) in January and 33 to 37 °C (91 to 99 °F) in August.

Sharm El Sheikh was formerly a port, but commercial shipping has been greatly reduced as the result of strict environmental laws introduced in the 1990s. The city has become a popular location for scuba diving as a result of its underwater scenery and warm waters, and it’s known for its sheltered sandy beaches, clear waters and coral reefs.
