Pakistan will make a prominent appearance at the UN Climate Conference (COP27) in Egypt starting in the first week of November. The conference will be co-chaired by the Prime Ministers of Norway, Pakistan, and the President of Egypt. Shahbaz Sharif, the prime minister of Pakistan, has been given the vice-chairmanship of the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP-27). Due to Sharif’s effective advocacy of the importance of an immediate climate change action strategy at national and international forums, Pakistan has been given the distinction amongst 195 member states of the UN. The development happened as Pakistan was still recovering from the destruction brought on by catastrophic flooding and excessive rainfall.
The 27th summit of the United Nations concerning the issues caused by climate change and the necessity for their effective solutions will be joined by international leaders, think tanks, along with the leaders of countries and global financial organizations. After the disastrous flooding in the country, PM Sharif convincingly advocated for quick climate change mitigation actions at the 77th annual session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) Council of Heads of State and Government in Samarkand.
COP27 is entirely focused on advancing international attempts to prevent horrible climatic instability and also to foster collaboration for helping those who have been affected by extreme weather patterns adapt to the adverse effects of global warming. Resource mobilization for those negatively impacted by calamities brought on by rising temperatures has never been done through the COPs of climate agreements. Discussions between the prime minister and counterparts as well as representatives of multilateral organizations will present chances to assess and improve bilateral ties in all areas.
The approaching COP27 will provide the prime minister with yet another significant chance to draw attention to this problem. The summit will provide Pakistan with yet another platform to encourage advanced nations to uphold the terms of the 2015 Paris Agreement, wherein they agreed to mobilize $100 billion annually to assist emerging economies in drafting a climate change action plan. The Paris Agreement recognized the significance of ecological sustainability to developing countries to assist them in tackling climate change. The pledge was established at COP15 in 2009, confirmed at COP16, and reiterated in the Paris Agreement.
All attention must be on the efforts and initiative for an aspirational, fair, and clear environmental program to rebuild confidence among countries and speed up the transformation required for the years ahead friendly with the climate as the Egyptian COP27 leadership brings the nations all over the world together. Bridging the financial gap would be essential to establishing global peace and security in the wake of deteriorating environmental consequences and a challenging geo-economic environment. Pakistan can communicate data on the level of Loss and Damage that is currently occurring and expected to occur in various local contexts, as well as the requirements, inadequacies, and initiatives that are being hampered by climate losses.
