Addressing the climate crisis requires bold and rapid collective action.

Highlights

  • Egypt's COP27 presidency vision is to move from negotiations and planning to implementation. Now is the time for action on the ground. It is therefore incumbent upon us to move rapidly towards full, timely, inclusive, and at-scale action on the ground.
  • We need to harmonize our global efforts. If we are to meet our pledges and commitments words must be turned into action.
  • Globally, the increasing frequency and intensity of extreme weather events is impacting the lives and livelihoods of millions of people. Rising global average temperature and rapid global warming are causing alarming consequences on human beings and all other forms of life on earth.
  • In fact, the climate crisis will aggravate social, economic and environmental threats. Thus, urgent actions are needed to address the climate crisis and to strengthen the implementation of ` response with an aim to create a resilient planet.
  • Our collective efforts to combat the adverse impacts of climate change are necessary/crucial if we are to secure a sustainable future for all.

 

Adaptation

  • World leaders, governments and state parties to the convention have reiterated their commitment at COP26 for enhanced global action on Adaptation in the COP26.
  • The Global Goal on Adaptation was one of the significant outcomes of COP26. We must ensure that COP27 makes the crucially needed progress and urge all parties to demonstrate the necessary political will if we are to capture and assess our progress towards enhancing resilience and assist the most vulnerable communities
  • Beyond the global goal on Adaptation, COP27 should witness enhanced global agenda for action on adaptation, confirming what we agreed on in Paris and further elaborated in Glasgow pact with regard to placing adaptation at the forefront of global action.
