The Ban Ki-moon Centre for Global Citizens team was on the ground at COP27 as observers hosting official side events conducting bilateral meetings and advocating for climate change adaptation in agriculture across the blue zone, green zone, and innovation zone (hosted by Climate Action.) Check out our photo collection here.
Over the course of two weeks, we were able to meet with many of our partners and conducted 35+ bilateral meetings. It was especially great to have the chance to brainstorm with 4 African ministries and a number of European governments, including the EC, Germany, and UK on the topics of climate adaptation, capacity building, and empowering farmers against climate change on the continent including:
- Hon. Minister Dr. Gerardine Mukeshimana, Minister of Agriculture and Animal Resources, Rwanda
- Hon. Minister Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto, Minister of Food and Agriculture, Ghana
- Hon. Eng. Collins Nzovu, Minister of Green Economy and Environment, Zambia
- Senator Lawal Hassan Anka, Chairman of the Committee on Ecology and Climate Change, and Salisu M. Dahiru, Director-General of the National Council on Climate Change, Nigeria
We also hosted 4 side events and contributed to 2 partner events. Watch all our events here.
