COP27 summit: Expert gives update on discussions at ongoing summit


Reimagining the financial architecture of climate action demands humane immigration and just trade policies.

This was the message coming out of a side event at the Sharm el-Sheikh Climate Change Conference COP 27 on the role of the state in mobilizing and directing finance for climate and health.

Speakers emphasized that finance flows remain inadequate, and that effective climate action requires investments from both the private and public sectors.

Political and economic leaders have called for just trade policies and highlighted the power of equitable international financial structures in addressing global problems.

To help us gain insight into proceedings at the summit, I spoke to Yusuf Kelani, environmental expert, who is currently in Sharm El-Sheik, the venue of the conference. I asked him to bring us up to speed about events that have taken place so far at the summit and was message was passed today at the summit.
