Analysis: True Success at COP27 Means Addressing Climate Justice — Here’s How to Do It

This year’s Conference of the Parties (COP), in Egypt, will be pivotal. Last year, in Glasgow, countries committed to more climate financing and raised their goals, but fell short of the required national commitments to limit warming globally to 1.5⁰ C.

COP27 is an opportunity to remedy that problem, but also to ensure that the issue of climate justice is tackled effectively — without climate justice, more funding and loftier promises by world leaders will be meaningless.

With the previous conference in Glasgow deemed a moderate success, with some countries committing more to climate finance and raising their goals, the conference in Egypt has a unique opportunity to take a much-needed leap towards effective climate action.
