A statement issued by the Secretariat of the United Nations Convention on Climate Change said that more than 50,000 people have registered and are expected to participate in the blue zone of the COP27 climate conference, in addition to thousands more in the green zone.
And the statement continued, “The Sharm El-Sheikh Climate Implementation Summit begins tomorrow and lasts for two days, in the presence of all participating heads of state and government. After the opening of the summit, several round tables will be held led by and attended by dozens of world leaders to focus on six main topics: just transitions, food security, innovative financing for climate and development, investing in the future of energy, water security, and climate. Change and Sustainability of Vulnerable Societies
The COP27 Presidency will host a series of events on thematic days from 9-17 November that will highlight practical solutions to the challenge of climate change and explore approaches to immediately scale up the implementation of these solutions in key sectors with all stakeholders.
Under the guidance of two high-profile climate leaders, Nigel Topping (UK) and Mahmoud Mohieldin (Egypt), plans and targets for a range of sectors and initiatives will be presented at dozens of events in the COP Climate Action Area.
These events will focus on the overarching theme of transforming climate pledges into climate action in pursuit of net zero emissions, enhancing resilience for the most vulnerable, and aligning financial flows with these goals.
In addition, the UNFCCC has supported sectoral initiatives in sectors such as sports, fashion, tourism, events and aviation and will announce greater ambition and increased collaboration to align these sectors with the 1.5°C target of the Paris Agreement.
To ensure a truly inclusive COP, digital participation is enabled to complement physical COP negotiations. Many of the events are broadcast online. For participants, the online COP platform can be accessed here.
