“What chances for the climate crisis? Mediterranean and Arab NGOs confer in advance of COP27?”

The secretariats of the Mediterranean Information Office for Environment, Culture and Sustainable Development (MIO-ECSDE) and Arab Network for Environment and Development (RAED) hold a meeting on May 26th, 2022 to prepare the COP27 of UNFCCC (Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt, 7-18 November 2022). It was focused on providing to the member NGOs of both networks background information on COP27, hard scientific facts on the impacts of climate change in this part of the world and the degree of urgency, and key policy developments.

Prof. Dr Wolfgang Cramer, one of the coordinators of MedECC, participated in the session dedicated to “The evidence-base of the climate urgency in the Mediterranean and Arab regions”.

How do we tell our children that what we are experiencing is the result of 26 climate conferences? A more drastic approach is needed at COP27.”
