أهداف الرئاسة المصرية
Following the work from COP26 in Glasgow, UK, the Egyptian presidency has structured COP27 with a focus on implementation, aiming at mobilizing collective efforts for ambitious emission reductions from different sectors, enhanced transformative adaptation agenda on the ground, enabling flows of appropriate finance and delivering on the ground on time and at scale.
This agenda is being organized into 11 thematic days:
Youth + Future Generations Day
Adaptation + Agriculture Day
Ace + Civil Society Day
The Cities + Climate Initiative is focused on advancing the role and impact of multilevel climate action in Canada using dialogue and collaboration. Through knowledge sharing, practical coordination, strategic dialogue, and public engagement, we aim to help Canadian cities chart a course forward, encouraging a common purpose and sense of collaboration on climate change mitigation and adaptation that will carry us through the 2020s.
We would like to thank the Trottier Family Foundation for financially supporting this work, and thank our dialogue participants for their contributions to this discussion. We look forward to continuing to work with you all on this critical effort.
