The 27th Conference of the Parties, the U.N. Climate Change Conference known as COP27, was held over a two-week period in mid-November at the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh in Egypt. World leaders convened to engage in multilateral negotiations on issues such as climate finance, decarbonization, agriculture, biodiversity and equity. They also grappled with how to achieve international climate goals in the midst of a global energy crisis, Putin’s war in Europe and rising inflation.
At this member-exclusive Baker Briefing, Ambassador David M. Satterfield, director of the Baker Institute, and Center for Energy Studies fellows Michelle Michot Foss, Todd Moss, Jim Krane, Francisco Monaldi and Gabriel Collins reflected on the outcomes of COP27 and the implications for different regions of the world.
