Regional Director for North Africa at the African Development Bank: The Ukrainian crisis has placed a greater bet on “COP27”

10/2/2022

The Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP27), to be held in Sharm El-Sheikh next November, is expected to fill the gaps and provide solutions on multiple issues raised by the Glasgow Climate Agreement, said Mohamed Al-Azizi, Regional Director General for North Africa at the African Development Bank.

He explained that the Ukrainian crisis resulted in a bigger bet on the COP27 conference, as many countries rushed to direct their attention towards the production of fossil fuels to secure their energy needs, so the alignment and union between countries to maintain the momentum on the shift away from the use of fossil fuels, and reducing the gap for what is targeted emissions by 2030, and building confidence among the international community, are all priorities of the COP27 Presidency.

Egypt will host the twenty-seventh Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Climate Change Convention COP27 next November in Sharm El-Sheikh, and this conference will be an opportunity for the meeting of Parties and other stakeholders, who are expected to accelerate their steps to deal with the negative repercussions of climate change and efforts aimed at adaptation and mitigation of global warming. .
