The 27th U.N. Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP27) is taking place in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt from November 6th to 18th, 2022. Egypt’s vision as COP27 President is to move from negotiations and planning towards “full, timely, inclusive, and at-scale action on the ground”.

Guided by the World Bank Group (WBG) Climate Change Action Plan, the WBG will exchange ideas and solutions at COP27 that will help countries achieve climate and development goals together.

At COP27, IFC will showcase breakthrough private sector solutions and focus on how to accelerate the development of bankable opportunities for decarbonization and climate change adaptation. In Sharm El-Sheikh, IFC will concentrate on 3 key themes: Adaptation and Resilience, Mobilizing Climate Finance, and Energy Access and Decarbonization.
