COP27: Key outcomes and what they mean for Africa

COP27's topics bringing hope to Africa

Industry decarbonization, as part of the mitigation process, is not directly addressing the African challenges. However, water, nature and food can be seen as part of loss and damage, as starvation, droughts and floods caused by natural disasters are affecting Africa heavily. Climate adaption brings hope, as it is clearly part of the African objectives. Some of the major goals for COP27 was to deliver a comprehensive ambitious mitigation work program, achieve and capture meaningful progress on the Global Goal on Adaptation, address the Loss and Damage deficit including through finding a solution to the funding issue, and effectively address the climate finance challenge in a manner which creates trust in the process.
