Welcome to the virtual Island Pavilion @ COP27, with updates coming to you live from our team on the ground in Egypt!

As the 27th Conference of the Parties (COP27) starts today, islands worldwide are calling for urgent and accelerated implementation to tackle the climate crisis and address the needs of remote, coastal and other vulnerable communities.

Last week, the Caribbean Climate Justice Alliance released an important statement calling for five priority areas for action to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement and the needs of our most vulnerable:

  1. Curbing emissions to limit global temperature increase to 1.5˚C
  2. Scaling up locally-led and ecosystem-based solutions for adaptation and resilience
  3. Improving access to and delivery of climate finance for frontline communities, small and micro-enterprises and civil society organisations as part of a ‘whole of society’ approach
  4. Ensuring additional and dedicated finance for loss and damage and fully operationalising the Santiago Network on Loss and Damage
  5. Supporting a just transition for pro-poor, inclusive, sustainable and resilient development

Island representatives hope to turn the tide at COP27 and have their voices heard by policymakers from around the world.
