GLF CLIMATE ALONGSIDE COP27
Simultaneous interpretation available (EN|FR|ES)
This hybrid conference has been made possible through the generous support of:
GLF Climate: Frontiers of Change
Humanity is facing a barrage of interconnected crises: climate change, conflict, hunger, high inflation, and the enduring impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
From heatwaves to hurricanes, fires to floods, the effects of the climate crisis are already being felt across the globe. Meanwhile, the war in Ukraine is causing energy prices to spiral and exposing our addiction to fossil fuels. So, where do we go from here?
Hosted digitally and in Sharm El Sheikh alongside COP27, GLF Climate 2022 will seek answers on how to build a low-carbon economy that puts people and nature first.
Join us for two full days 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.
GLF Climate 2022 Event Concept
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 action and land rights
Indigenous Peoples and local communities must be at the heart of climate action, but they need 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.”
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.”
