CAIRO – 19 April 2022: Egyptian Ambassador to Canada Ahmed Abu Zeid said that Egypt keeps in close contact with all international partners, the private sector and civil society to ensure the success of the next UN Climate Change Conference, COP27, to be hosted in the Red Sea resort city of Sharm El Sheikh in November.

His remarks came during his participation Tuesday in a panel discussion on the occasion of launching the second edition of a climate dialogue held by a number of Canadian civil society organizations working in international climate action.

Abu Zeid stressed that Egypt seeks to maintain the momentum generated at the UN Climate Change Conference, COP26, in Glasgow last year to remind countries of their pledges to cut carbon emissions and provide the necessary funding for developing countries to fulfil their national commitments .

The Egyptian diplomat shed light on the importance of assisting developing and African states to achieve development, in parallel with the efforts to address climate change.

Abu Zeid called for coordinating efforts among different world countries to develop new initiatives in the fields of green economy, renewable energy and green hydrogen, noting that Egypt recently launched a new initiative that focuses on improving and supporting women's capacity to participate in discussions and shape environmental policy and action at all levels, preserving the environment and combating climate change.
