COP27 needs to reignite the trust that past commitments for emission reductions by large emitters will be upheld, exceeded, and accelerated. COP27 also termed “The African Cop” needs to deliver progress on the Global Goal on Adaptation and programs in support of the world’s most vulnerable countries and communities’ capacity to adapt to the climate crisis.

Finance will be in focus with a demand that historic commitments are fulfilled, such as the USD 100bn from developed countries annually from 2020 – 2025 and a doubling of international finance for adaptation by 2025 agreed at COP26. Furthermore, developing counties demand that loss and damage if formally adopted as part of the COP27 agenda leading to funding arrangements.

GGGI at COP27 focuses primarily on actions in the following areas:

Adaptation, Increase Resilience, and Food Security

Closing the Finance Gap
Achieving Net Zero and Inclusive Green Growth
Powering Livelihoods, Cities, and Industries

“We are in the decisive decade to avert the worst of the climate crisis, and how can we not try to be more ambitious, scale up our work, do more to accelerate the green growth transformation in our Member countries that the world so urgently needs. Doing anything less would be irresponsible.”
