The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change 27th Conference of the Parties (UNFCCC COP27) was held on 6-18th November 2022 in Sharm-el-Sheikh, Egypt, and gathered 200 countries and over 45,000 delegates.
A key focus of this COP was around implementation and developing regions, and more than ever the Local Governments and Municipal Authorities’ delegation (LGMA), and Regions4, were heard and visible, with its largest delegation to date of 25 regional governments, that spoke and represented the role of regions and local actors for adaptation and development.
Regions4 was able to contribute directly to the negotiations around the Global Goal on Adaptation and the Global Stocktake, reflecting its valuable role in taking stock of the progress of regional governments on adaptation through the RegionsAdapt Progress Report 2021–2022, and influencing the climate processes. As a result, cities and multilevel governance were mentioned as key elements in the Sharm El Sheikh implementation plan and in the decisions of the Glasgow – Sharm El-Sheikh Work programme on adaptation.
