It is my pleasure to welcome you to the official website of the 27th Session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC COP27), which Egypt is pleased to host in the fascinating red sea city of Sharm El-Sheikh, an oasis of beauty and serenity, now also preparing to leave its mark and lasting legacy on the global agenda to fight climate change and address its impacts.
Today more than ever, people across the globe expect action on the ground towards securing the 1.5C goal, and adapting to the negative impacts of climate change through the implementation of the provisions of the Paris Agreement, updating NDCs and fulfilling the broad array of pledges and commitments made in Glasgow by Governments and other entities. This effort will not bear fruit unless global concerted action is taken at all levels and by all actors. COP27 will be the right moment to seize the opportunity and further turn the climate challenge into an opportunity for sustainable development and economic prosperity through investing in a green future for people and planet.
At COP27, we trust that world leaders, negotiators and all stakeholders will be gathering once again to demonstrate their unwavering commitment to climate action on all fronts. Egypt is fully committed to hosting an inclusive Conference where all parties, youth, civil society and the private sector can showcase their action on implementation and delivery and further enhance their ambition towards a just transition based on the principles of equity and common but differentiated responsibilities.
I wish you all a successful, fruitful and enjoyable conference and stay in Sharm El-Sheikh.
Dr. Mostafa Madbouly
Prime Minister of the Arab Republic of Egypt
