From November 6 to 18th, 2022, the United Nations Climate Change Conference will take place in Sharm-el-Sheikh, Egypt.
Each year, a new Conference of the Parties, here on climate, brings together governmental and non-governmental stakeholders, from around the world to decide collectively on common objectives to be achieved to address climate change.
One thinks immediately of the national delegations, which come to represent their respective States. Although they are essential actors, they are not the only participants in this event. NGOs, companies, associations, scientists… A large number of people will be present in Sharm-el-Sheikh. As at each COP, the event takes place under the aegis of the United Nations
The Mediterranean Action Plan of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP/MAP) and its Components,including Plan Bleu, will participate in the Mediterranean Pavilion, the space dedicated to Mediterranean priorities, during COP 27. It is the first time such Pavillon is represented at a COP on climate change.
