Our COP27 priorities

The climate crisis is a global human rights threat. It is not about the impacts that may be felt in the near future. It is about the devasting fact that lives are being lost, at this very moment and with each passing conference where political ambition is not materialised with concrete actions that caters for or cares about people’s wellbeing. We are living through this climate crisis not because it was an inevitable act of nature, but because those in power have been unwilling to commit to real action.

COP27 needs to be a COP of implementation, of fulfilling long-overdue commitments made and taking the climate and environmental crises seriously.

In line with the African Women’s and Girl’s Demands for COP27, and the Women & Gender Constituency’s Demands, we present to you our priorities for COP27!
