At the COP27 in Egypt, global civil society platform CSO Partnership for Development Effectiveness (CPDE) is set to call on global leaders to “upscale and deliver on climate finance commitments to meet the urgent need for sustainable and effective climate response.”
COP27 refers to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, Conference of Parties (COP27), the 27th session of the Conference of Parties taking place from 5 to 18 November 2022 in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt. It will be attended by global leaders, civil society organisations, youth and women movements, academia, experts, researchers, media and private sectors.
Key discussions will focus on climate finance delivery strategy, climate resilient initiatives, operationalisation of the Loss and Damage, and the failure of the most vulnerable countries to receive adequate financing for the climate programs.
The CPDE delegation at COP27 is composed of Policy and Advocacy Coordinator Josefina Villegas and Capacity Development Coordinator Glenis Balangue from the CPDE Global Secretariat, and CPDE Climate Task Force members Ivan Enrile of Ibon International, Carola Mejia of Latindadd, Maggie Mwape of Center for Environmental Justice from Zimbabwe and CPDE’s Youth Constituency, Paul Belisario of the Indigenous Peoples Movement for Self-Determination and Liberation (IPMSDL), and Pefi King of the Pacific and Migrant constituencies. Advocacy efforts will also be coordinated with participating members from other constituencies (FBO, Labour, Feminist Group).
CPDE is co-hosting an official side event on 12 November centered around the issue of putting people and real solutions at the heart of climate action, and Carola Mejia will speak on operationalising development effectiveness principles in climate finance discourse, processes and negotiations.
CPDE will also be engaging the larger CSO movement coordinated around COP27 advocacy, on issues such as human rights, climate justice and civic space.
