The COP27 summit at Sharm El-Sheikh in Egypt closed on November 20 with a breakthrough agreement to provide loss and damage funding to support vulnerable countries hit by climate disasters. At the same time, mitigation remained a hotly contested topic, with active discussion on language such as phasing down all fossil fuels.
To understand what succeeded, what didn’t, and what is next for global climate negotiations, join the COP27 debrief by the Centre for Policy Research on November 23, 5:30 PM IST. Speakers will present their understanding of the key decisions made in Egypt, and an interpretation of what they mean for the future of climate action and for Indian climate diplomacy and policy.
