Last call for 1.5 degrees : COP27 in Sharm El Sheikh schedules fund for loss and damage for departure while mitigation stays grounded

  • The twenty-seventh Conference of the Parties (COP27) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in Sharm el-Sheikh made history by for the first time ever discussing and ultimately even agreeing to establish a fund to address loss and damage caused by climate change.

While modest progress can be observed, it is too slow to actually achieve the objectives of the Paris Agreement.
