COP27 is short for The 27th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change
COP27 Will Be the 27th Meeting of the Parties to the Convention
Being held in Egypt from November 6 to November 18, the conference of the parties to the United Nations convention on climate change (COP27) is an annual meeting of the heads of state or government of all united nations member states.
The two-week conference brings together the parties with world leaders, scientific experts, members of civil society and UN officials to identify responses to the climate crisis and facilitate their implementation. With an expected 35,000 participants, COP 27 will be one of the largest COPs ever held. It will also undoubtedly be one of the most contentious COPs as the world grapples not only with climate change but also with conflicts, economic recession, COVID-19, loss of biodiversity and more. Faced with these challenges, the Egyptian COP presidency will commit to promoting progress on mitigation, adaptation, financing and international cooperation.
