World Bank Group at COP27
Live From Sharm El Sheikh
November 6-18, 2022
Leaders, experts and activists are gathered in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt for COP 27, amid growing urgency to tackle the climate crisis. The World Bank Group is hosting a number of live events, featuring top level guests, throughout the conference.
Watch back our first week panels which included the Presidents of Mozambique and Tanzania on scaling up climate finance, a discussion on the importance of a ‘Methane Sprint’ to reduce emissions quickly, and an in-depth conversation on the importance of investing in people to advance climate goals. We also heard about the need to address climate and development issues together from representatives of South Africa, Morocco and Malawi, and from Uganda on the urgent need for an energy transition.
On week 2, we focused on solutions to transition away from coal, on the role of women and girls in effective climate action, the importance of climate-smart cities and agriculture, the blue economy and much more.
