The United Nations climate agency published a draft negotiating text of the deal that delegates at the COP27 summit in Sharm el-Sheikh are hoping to agree in the coming days. The Draft Text of COP27 will provide the framework for the decisions reached at the summit.
The text, which builds on earlier, did not set out the proposed solution to one of the most contentious issues at the summit, the ‘loss and damage‘ financial arrangements to provide funding to developing countries suffering catastrophic climate events.
The hosting of COP27 in the green city of Sharm El-Sheikh this year marks the 30th anniversary of the adoption of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC). In the thirty years since, the world has come a long way in the fight against climate change and its negative impacts on our planet; we are now able to better understand the science behind climate change, better assess its impacts, and better develop tools to address its causes and consequences.
In parallel with the negotiations tracks, the COP27 Egyptian Presidency designated a number of key thematic days that will place on its agenda a number of panel discussions, roundtables and side events.
With the COP27 completed, will it be another jamboree or a step forward to our realising the Sustainable Development Goals in 8 years to come?
