The bar is high for achievement and ambition this November at COP27, which will be a testing moment for global and climate leadership. This session will discuss what is needed to ensure that the ambitions and requirements to avert ecological emergency are met. Building on the success and shortcomings of last year’s COP, the tangible sense of urgency leading up to the event will necessitate scalable solutions, far-reaching and sustainable policy decisions, ambitious investment strategies and collaboration on a global scale. Heartfelt speeches won’t fulfill the $100B climate financing promise or make energy transitions real. This is the time for concrete plans that turn rhetoric into reality.
