Following on the 2021 conference in Glasgow, the vulnerable and disaster-affected communities of the world are hoping for progress during the 2022 UN Climate Change Conference or COP27, which will take place in Sharm El-Sheikh in November this year. But how does COP27 relate to the work of humanitarian actors and how can they engage in the proceedings to make sure that the discussions take into account humanitarian needs?
Commitment #6 of the Climate and Environment Charter encourages humanitarian organizations to use their influence to mobilize urgent and more ambitious climate action and environmental protection. On 30 June, join us for a webinar on how we can make COP27 an opportunity for this. The objectives of this webinar are to:
• Raise awareness of the UNFCC process and the importance of this year’s COP27 and how it links to humanitarian action
• Discuss why humanitarian organizations need to engage to bring in humanitarian perspectives on the topic of Loss and Damage in the lead-up to COP27
• Highlight the modalities and strategies for humanitarian NGOs to engage in the preparatory work for COP27
