Event Details

Years of carrying the burden for a problem that Africa hasn’t created. Countless promises with minimum results. Now that the COP27 will be held on the African ground. It is time to join forces, to organize, to prepare. Stay part of the conversation at the AfriCOP27.

The upcoming Conference of Parties, COP, in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt is the next occasion to find common ground for the key political issue of the 21st Century on climate. 

The world already turns its eyes to this opportunity, especially Africa which was highly disappointed with last year’s COP’s outcomes in Glasgow and is aiming to push for its interests once again. The conference being held on the african ground has a special meaning as the african delegation will aim to make it a success and redress the failures of the previous years.

The FES Madagascar through its climate change program is organizing the AfriCOP27, a continental conference focusing on Africa’s perspective ahead of the upcoming COP. Specialists of climate change and international negotiations from the continent will discuss with the goal of uniting in the negotiations, showing cohesion and solidarity, and making the COP 27 in Egypt a real African COP that will be remembered as the world’s conference that opened the next chapter in international relations.

    • 11:15am Climate finance. Talk is cheap. 11:15am - 12:00pmWith the adoption of the Paris agreement, the developed world promised to provide $100 billion to help the poorer and more vulnerable countries to face the consequences of climate change. It is still just a promise. Not enough funds have been mobilized and the existing climate funds are difficult to access. With the urgency of the fight against climate change, Africa demands that the rich countries turn their words into action and meet their climate finance commitments. Climate finance will be a central theme of negotiations at the COP27.
