AUC’S APS TO HOST THE ROAD TO SHARM EL SHEIKH CIVIL SOCIETY COP27 MEETING

 


WHAT

In preparation for the UN Climate Change Conference 2022 (COP27) that will take place in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt, the Alternative Policy Solutions research project at The American University in Cairo (AUC) will host "The Road to Sharm El Sheikh Civil Society COP 27 Meeting”. 


The event will bring together over 50 civil society associations working on the environment and climate change issues for a meeting with key government representatives involved in the preparation of COP27 in Sharm El Sheikh. The outcome of this meeting will yield the civil society framework research paper for COP27, a parallel to the government's climate change national strategy, that contains a concrete set of recommendations for policymakers on how to move forward with the focus issues prioritized by the government. 

The meeting will be attended by Mahmoud Mohiedin, UN High-Level Climate Change Champion for Egypt; Ambassador Mohamed Nasr, director of the Environment and Sustainable Development Department at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs; Arne Lietz, the lead initiator for the Report of the European Parliament on Climate Diplomacy; Frank Hartmann, the German ambassador to Cairo; and key focal points from the ministries of environment, water, agriculture, energy, transportation, and planning.
