Think Global, Act Local: Reflections on COP27

COP27 is now over, but the fight against climate change continues!

Read some of our key takeaways from the latest UN climate conference, including top tips on how you can continue to make a positive difference locally.

Key Takeaways from COP27

  1. A new fund for ‘loss and damage’ – A historic loss and damage fund was agreed to support small islands and vulnerable nations on the frontlines of climate change.
  2. Global Methane Pledge – 150 nations have vowed to cut methane emissions 30% by 2030.
  3. Launch of the Forest and Climate Leaders’ Partnership – A voluntary partnership of 26 countries committed to accelerating momentum to halt and reverse forest loss and land degradation by 2030, was launched.
  4. Insufficient commitments on fossil fuels – A decision to phase down on all fossil fuels and scale up renewable energy sources failed to be reached.  
  5. 1.5°C target – Weak emissions targets mean that the goal to limit global heating by 1.5 degrees is ‘on life support’ according to Alok Sharma, COP26 president.
