The COP27, the 27th UN climate summit, will take place in Sharm el-Sheikh from 6 to 18 November 2022. At this summit, UN member states will discuss the global fight against climate change. Wageningen University & Research scientists aim to provide delegations with accurate information and to follow the negotiations closely.
Both climate mitigation (reducing the emission of greenhouse gasses) and climate adaptation (adapting to new conditions) will be discussed at the COP27. In Sharm el-Sheikh, WUR will organise sessions to inform participants and to bring them into contact with each other. In doing so, we will involve youth, students, governments, NGOs and companies. We will mainly focus on the importance of food systems and biodiversity. WUR has a strong track record and an international reputation in these fields.
