This year marks the 27th annual United Nations Climate Change Conference, otherwise known as COP27 (Conference of the Parties of the UNFCC). Held in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt from November 6th to 18th, 2022, this worldwide event will bring together Heads of State and representatives of almost 200 countries around the world to discuss strategies to lower global temperatures.
Kicking off in 1992 after the UN’s first climate agreement, this conference has grown to deliver international action on a variety of issues including reducing greenhouse gas emissions, building resilience, financing sustainability, and adapting to the unavoidable impacts of climate change. Currently, global temperatures have risen 1.1°C and if they exceed 1.5°C, it could be life-threatening to about half the world’s population.
As we prepare for this important international conference, Partners in Project Green has put together some resources breaking down some of the latest research from the IPCC (International Panel on Climate Change).
