Climate Adaptation Session
Theme: The Road to COP27: Scaling up Climate Adaptation Financing 
Date: Tuesday, 27 September 2022, 12.00am to 13:00pm EST 
Venue: UN Headquarters, Senegalese Mission, Room 8, New York Context 

With only eight years left to halve global emissions, and already six years spent negotiating the Paris rulebook, COP27 must be the year that the international community makes the shift from mistrust and siloed commitment to unified action and implementation. Present global climate change patterns have shown that Africa continues to disproportionately suffer the most detrimental effects of the climate change, despite contributing the least, and therefore should receive the greatest support to mitigate and adapt. Accordingly, for COP27 to be a success and break these barriers of mistrust and move towards a unified global partnership, leaders from high emitting countries must meet their unmet commitments to deliver climate financing for adaptation, loss and to damage. This session will bring together key stakeholders ahead of COP27 to discuss these pertinent but often side-lined element of climate negotiations to unlock areas of cooperation, through aligned approaches and action orientated partnerships between Africa and Europe.
