For the first time in COP’s history, the 27th edition is hosting a space dedicated to the Mediterranean and the urgent climate challenges and solutions the region has to offer. Don’t miss any of the events!

COP 27 (6-18 November, Sharm el-Sheikh – Egypt) has just kick-started and for the first time in COP’s history it will be hosting a Mediterranean Pavilion: a space dedicated to promote the importance of the Mediterranean, seeking to highlight the urgent climate challenges and solutions the region has to offer

Located in the COP27 Blue zone, the Mediterranean Pavilion will host relevant events and working meetings and provide an exceptional opportunity to highlight these severe challenges as well as to illustrate, share, scale up and discuss the advanced initiatives applied and planned in the region.

The Mediterranean Pavilion is conceived as a space for all regional actors – public and private, scientific and academic, technical, policymaking, civil society, finance, and business – actively engaged in facing the climate crisis in and around the Mediterranean Sea.

The initiative is led by the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) together with the United Nations Environment Programme – Mediterranean Action Plan (UNEP-MAP) and the PRIMA Foundation, along with a coalition of the most relevant organizations dealing with climate action in the region.

More information on the events organized on-site and online at the Mediterranean Pavilion can be found here.

In particular, on 9 November, Professor Angelo Riccaboni, Chair of SDSN Mediterranean, Co-chair of SDSN Europe and Chair of PRIMA, will coordinate the hybrid event organized by PRIMA, “Sustainable agrifood systems as a lever for climate neutrality and food security: the role of partnership and cooperation in research and innovation”. Professor Jeffrey Sachs, President of the SDSN, and Professor Phoebe Kounduri, Co-chair of SDSN Europe will also deliver speeches at the event. 

The event will be live streamed here.
