Science has established beyond doubt that the window for action regarding climate change and ist effects is closing rapidly. In November 2022, Egypt hosted the 27th Conference of the Parties of the UNFCCC (COP27) in Sharm El-Sheikh, with a view to building on previous successes and paving the way for future ambition. COP27 is widely described as a defining moment in which global stakeholders rise to the occasion to fight against climate change.
