Canada Pavilion At COP27 Provides Unique Opportunity to showcase Climate Action
The Government of Canada, led by Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC), will host a Canada Pavilion at COP27 in Sharm el-Sheikh.
The 27th Conference of the Parties (COP27) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) will be held in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt from November 6-18, 2022.
The Canada Pavilion provides a unique opportunity to showcase Canadian climate action, amplify global efforts and support for developing countries, support the Egyptian Presidency’s COP27 goals, and profile the diversity of Canadian actions and perspectives on climate change.
Parties are expected to continue and increase their mitigation efforts in order to limit the global average temperature rise to well below 2ºC and pursue efforts to limit the increase to 1.5ºC, build adaptive capacity and resilience, and deliver on climate finance commitments. The Conference of the Parties (COP) is an annual meeting that brings together the 197 Parties to the UNFCCC.
The Government of Canada established the 2030 Emissions Reduction Plan on March 29, 2022 to provide a credible roadmap to achieve Canada’s 2030 target and put us on a path towards net-zero emissions by 2050. Canada is also finalizing our first National Adaptation Strategy in 2022 and delivering on our five-year (2021-2026) $5.3 billion international climate finance commitment.
The Events Program will aim to reflect the Egyptian Presidency’s thematic days to highlight critical areas for climate action and collaboration, with the exception of Solutions Day, which will instead focus on the theme of Indigenous Climate Leadership and feature events defined and led by National Indigenous Organizations and Representatives.
