Egypt intensifies meetings for next climate summit

Cairo, Aug 26 (Prensa Latina) The Egyptian Government is developing an intense agenda of international meetings as part of the preparations for the climate summit, COP27, which will take place in the seaside resort of Sharm El-Sheikh in November, official sources reported on Friday.

This issue was one of the points of the telephone interview between Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, which was held on Thursday.

At the same time, Environment Minister Yasmine Fouad talked via videoconference with Mary Robinson, chair of The Elders, an international non-governmental organization founded by Nelson Mandela, which acts as an adviser to the United Nations.

According to a communique, both parties called for increased international funding to address the scourge.

About this issue, Fouad emphasized the need for a greater monetary contribution from developed nations.

Egyptian Foreign Minister and COP27 President-designate Sameh Shoukry exchanged views on the subject with Danish Minister of Climate, Energy, and Public Utilities Dan Jannik Jorgensen.

Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Ahmed Hafez said that during the meeting, the two officials agreed on the need to promote a global climate agenda.

Egypt launched its National Strategy for Climate Change 2050 in May to tackle the repercussions of that scourge.
