LIVE Webinar: COP27 – What does it mean for international climate policy?

Net Zero Watch

TODAY – 6pm GMT – 1pm EST – 10am PST

COP27, held in Egypt, has seen the continuation of an ongoing argument between wealthy and developing countries about the so-called “loss and damage” mechanism, the idea of which is for richer countries to reimburse poorer countries for climate-related damages.
