GLF Climate: Frontiers of Change – How to achieve net zero

Humanity is facing a barrage of interconnected crises: climate change, conflict, hunger, high inflation, and an uneven recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.

A new era for Africa’s drylands

Time is rapidly running out to tackle the climate crisis, which is set to leave half the world’s population dangerously exposed – but we can still prevent catastrophe if we act now.

Hosted digitally and in Sharm El Sheikh alongside COP27, the GLF Climate hybrid conference will assess progress since COP26 and call for a just transition to a decarbonized economy.

Join us for a full day of plenaries, interactive sessions, launches and more, and learn from leading scientists, activists, Indigenous leaders, financiers, youth and policymakers as we piece together the climate puzzle.

Thematic Areas

Restoring landscapes

We can’t fix climate change without bringing degraded landscapes back to life and protecting our natural environment.

Resilient and regenerative adaptation

It may be too late to prevent climate change, but we can still protect ourselves from its worst effects by building resilience.

Community finance and land rights

Indigenous Peoples and local communities must be at the heart of climate action, but they need funding and land rights to make that happen.

Social and environmental justice

There’s no climate justice without social justice. How can we protect the most vulnerable people from the effects of climate change?

Innovative climate finance solutions

Less than 3% of climate finance flows to small farmers and local communities. It’s time for financiers to rise to the challenge and green their portfolios.

“There is only one nature out there. There is only one planet out there, and if we do not save it, it’s not the planet that’s going to disappear, it’s human kind.”

Pierre Gramegna
Minister of Finance, Luxembourg

“In COP26 we’ve heard about the Amazon and Indigenous people, but we don’t see Indigenous people being at the forefront and at the center of the discussion, occupying the spaces of negotiation and discussion. We see many prominent people talking on our behalf, but we don’t need anyone to talk on our behalf. We have a voice, and we know what we need.”

Indigenous environmental activist, Sateré Mawé peoples

“There is no question that bold interdependent transformative actions are needed to turn the climate and biodiversity crisis around.”
