No fewer than 40,000 delegates from around the world are to participate in the 2022 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), otherwise known as COP27.
A statement issued by the COP27 Communication Team on Thursday, said the summit was expected to host one of the largest number of participants for the global climate conference ever.
The convention is scheduled to hold at a North African City of Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt, between Nov. 6 and 18.
“Diverse representation will include around 100 heads of states and governments, and tens of thousands of delegates, civil society, media and all other relevant stakeholders,” said the media team in a copy of the statement obtained by NAN.
The delegate will engage with climate and other overlapping global challenges at various levels such as the Sharm El-Sheikh Climate Implementation Summit (SHICC), thematic days, flagship initiatives and Green Zone activities.
Speaking ahead of the conference, Amb. Wael Aboulmagd, Special Representative to the COP27 President, said: “The Egyptian Presidency team has worked tirelessly to create an enabling environment that is conducive to successful negotiations.
“As the hosts of the COP, we are keen on bringing representative of nations and stakeholders from across the world and to provide the required momentum to address the required actions for urgent and at-scale implementation of climate commitments and pledges.”
