The project will support Egypt’s COP27 presidency and its work towards implementing the Paris Agreement through initiatives in several priority areas, including renewable energy, climate change adaptation, and climate security.

Technical expertise and knowledge will be provided through the project to assist Egypt in delivering on its commitments as the host of this year’s conference. This will include expert support for consultations on regional and thematic groupings for inclusive negotiations, the advancement of multidisciplinary initiatives for climate action, and the showcasing of best practices from Africa and other regions.
