5 reasons why water is critical to COP27
Too little has happened since last year’s climate meeting COP26. But the upcoming COP27 can speed up progress if water is placed at the heart of climate action. New research and growing climate risks should make water more important than ever – here are five reasons.
When the next UN Climate Change Conference opens in Sharm El-Sheikh 6-18 November it will be amid fears that the world is less committed to climate action than a year ago. At COP26 in Glasgow countries still said they would deliver emission cuts that could keep global warming below a 1.5-degree temperature increase. But according to a new report from UN Climate Change, we are instead headed for a 10-percent increase by 2030.
