COP27 is the climate justice and human rights COP: a COP that reflects the reality of the climate crisis, where inaction and delay will lead to losses, damages, and suffering.
We know that addressing losses and damages with urgency means anticipating as much as possible near-term losses and working to prevent future ones. It means accelerating efforts to limit global warming to 1.5° C and aligning our actions with science. It means following the leadership of the people on the frontlines of the energy, food, climate, and social crises. It means fighting the injustices fuelling the climate crisis and the destruction of nature, and exposing the systems that put fossil fuel companies’ interests ahead of people’s lives.
