At COP27 in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt in 2022, there was a historic, eleventh-hour agreement by the countries of the world to establish a “loss and damage” fund. For the first time, the world’s largest historic climate polluters, led by the United States, are acknowledging the need to formally address climate justice and establish funding mechanisms to help poorer nations address the devastating impacts of climate change they’re experiencing today.

The Climate Center and our partners organized several press conferences and an official side event at COP27. Resources and recordings from several of these events are available below:
